This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

TTN bringing forward the present Volume the Acting Editor of the 
Miscellanea Genealooica et Heraldica feels that he cannot 
forget to notice the devout attention which the late Dr. Howard paid to 
the authenticity of documents and the dates committed to his judgment 
and approval, and how, in any case submitted to him, his decision was 
always on the right side, and his opinion at all times cheerfully given 
without any ulterior gain to himself. 

The Editors have to acknowledge with pleasure the various contribu- 
tions made by Mr. A. F. G. L^veson Gower, r.S.A., of H.B.M. Legation, 
The Hague, as it is their duty to again thank him for the transcriptions 
of the Monuments in the Church of St. Giles-in- the- Fields. To our able 
contributor Mr. Maxwell Adams, B.A., we were indebted for the History 
of the Family of Adams, which included an interesting account of 
the Family of Viscount Iveagh. To Mr. Cecil T. Davis they are much 
indebted for his ample account of the Inhabitants of Wandsworth. The 
genealogical history of the Family of Savage of Warwickshire is also 
interesting, the pedigree shewing the maternal relatives of Walter Savage 
Landor. To Mr. Everard Green, F.S.A., Eouge Dragon, they owe their 
best thanks for the pedigree he contributed, and also to Mr. George 
Grazebrook, F.S.A., for his "Physiological Curiosity," which has aroused 
a good deal of attention in the medical world. 

By the advice of Subscribers we shall issue the forthcoming Volume 
as Volume I., Fourth Series ; it will enable many new Subscribers to join 
at the beginning of a Series, and will contain a transcription of the 
Monumental Inscriptions in the British Cemeteries of the Ionian Islands 
by Mr. Leveson Gower, which he had done previous to their demolition 
by the municipal authorities. We have also had copied all the monuments 
in St. Anne's Church, Soho, for publication. 

The Editors trust to be favoured with contributions appertaining to 
family history, grants of arms, etc. ; and any other matter of a genealogical 
nature will be always cheerfully acknowledged.

The following History has been very carefully compiled from the most authentic 
sources, viz., information from members of the family, monumental inscriptions, 
parochial and family registers, wills, deeds, family manuscripts, published works in 
the libraries of Trinity College, Dublin, the Royal Irish Academy, the Royal Dublin 
Society, etc. 

The original surname of the family was " Adam,"t and they appear to have been 
the constant and steady friends of the Red Douglases, Earls of Angus, ever ready 
to unite their followers either to repel an inroad of the English or in turn to become 
the invaders ; and though they have never obtained a more permanent title than 
knighthood, they have reached to the highest position in the different professions, 
and have formed matrimonial alliances with the noble houses of Douglas, Leslie, 
O'Neill, Magennis, Cosby, etc., ever maintaining their position in that class of 
society so happily described by Sir Bernard Burke, Ulster King-of-Arms, "as 
holding the next place to the Nobility, the untitled Country Gentlemen, a class, 
though be it remembered, not one degree below the other in antiquity of descent, 
personal accomplishments, and national usefulness ; nay, the Chiefs of the Houses 
from which the Nobility spring are generally to be found in this division of the 
Aristocracy, and for the simple reason that the eldest son and heir being already 
provided for, the field of adventure belongs almost exclusively to the junior members 
of the family, who, thus forced upon the arena, achieve by their prowess or their 
talents — the sword or the pen — fame, wealth, and eminence." (Preface to Burke's 
•' Landed Gentry," 1846.) 

The following description of Northlands, the seat of the senior branch of the 
family, is from the pen of the same talented author : — " Northlands, in the county of 
Cavan, the seat of the Very Rev. Samuel Adams. This mansion was built in the year 
1822 by the present proprietor, the estate itself having been in the family for the last 
150 years. The house, which is of moderate size, is in the plain English style of 
building. In front of the hall door is a porch of cut-stone such as may still be seen 
in many parts of this country. Above forty acres of underwood was planted here in 
1817." (Burke's " Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 93.) Several acres of 
plantation, with Cornalaragh Lough, have since been added to the demesne, which 
is now the residence of Samuel Allen Adams. 

* CommnnicAted by Maxwell Adams, Esq., Barrister-at-Law. From a MS. by the late 
Rev. B. W. Adams, D.D. 

f It would seem that inattention to spelling first caused the alteration of the name from Adam 
to Ada/nXf for we find that Jane Adams nig Allen (see p. 8), wife of James Adams of Monagban, 
is called AdaiM in the will of her mother, Margaret Allen of Kilmore, dated 6 Dacember 1694, 
and Adam in that of her brother, Richard Allen of Kilmore, co. Monaghan, dated 14 October 
1724, in which her son also is called Allen Adam, Both wills are in the Probate Office, King's 
Tnns, Dnblin. See also the extracts giyen in the Appendix, where Colonel Adams is also called 



The Arms borne by the family of Adams are : (rules, a heart between three 
erosses-^osslet fitch^e or ; and for Crest : On a mount vert a cross -cross let fitchSe or, 
charged with a bleeding heart, as registered in the Office of Arms in Dublin. 

Richard Adams of Wainsford, Hants, however, used as a crest a wyvern gules, 
and his descendants still use the same. It is not known how this crest came to be 
assumed by this branch of the family, bat there is a tradition that Richard Adams 
adopted his mother's crest, she being a Leslie. 

Another branch of the family used as crest a cross-crosslet fitchee gules, sur- 
mounted by a sword in saltvre proper, hilted and pommelled or, which is the crest of 
the family of Adam of Blair Adam, from whom the Adamses are descended. 

The descendants of Richard Adams of Wainsford also quarter the arms of Peers, 
viz.. Azure, on afesse argent between three pelicans or, vulning themselves proper, as 
many Ogresses — the said Richard hanng married Louisa, daughter and coheir of 
Newsham Peers of Alveston in Warwiolwhire, who died 1803. 


The first authentic account of the family is recorded in Scotland, in the reign 
of Alexander II. (1214—1249), when 

Sib Dunoan Adam, Knt., affixed his signature, as a witness, to a donation to 
the church of Wemyss (Burke's " Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 31) by 
a progenitor of the Earl of Wemyss. His successor, 

Alexander Adam, lived in the reign of Alexander III. (1249 — 1286) (Burke's 
"Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 31), and is traditionally reported to 
have married into the illustrious house of Douglas. His son, 

Duncan Adam, lived during the eventful reign of Robert Bruce (1306—1329) 
(Burke's *' Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 81) ; he married and left four 
sons, Robert, John, Reginald, and Duncan (Burke's " Landed Gentry," 1846, vol. i., 
p. 4), from whom ail the Adams, Adamses, Adamsons, and Addies in Scotland are 
descended. The third son was very likely the Right Rev. Reginald Adam, Bishop 
of Brechin, Scotland, one of the most influential men of his time, and was 
frequently employed by the Estates of the Nation in foreign negotiations during the 
troubled reign of David Bruce (1329 — 1371), in all of which he acquitted himself 
ably and honourably (Burke's '* Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 81). 
The youngest son, 

Duncan Adam, with several other brave Scottish gentlemen, accompanied 
James, Lord Douglas, in the expedition which he undertook in order to convev, in 
a golden casket, the embalmed heart of King Robert Bruce to the Holy Sepulchre 


at JeniBalem (Burke's " Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 81). On arriving 
there, Douglas solemnly buried it before the High Altar, and on his voyage home, 
being forced by a storm to land at Valencia in Spain, he found Alphonsus, King of 
Arragon, preparing to march against the Saracens or Moors. Lord Douglas joined 
his forces and was slain in an ambush, 20 August 1380, on. the bloody field of Theba 
in Andalusia (Hume's '^ Hist, of the Houses of Douglas and Angus "). Another 
version of this tragic event is given by Thomas Smibert in his "Hist, of the 
Clans of Scotland,'°that it was on the journey out Douglas was obliged to land at 
Valencia, and that when he came up with the Saracens he tossed the casket con- 
taining the heart of his royal master into the thickest of the enemy, bidding it 
*' Go first as it was wont, and Douglas would follow or die." Doaglas was slain, 
but his faithfdl followers, recovering possession of the casket and heart, conveyed 
them to Jerusalem and there buried them (Smibert's " Hist, of the Clans of 
Scotland," p. 828). It is believed that the heart and crosses-crosslet in the 
armorial bearings of the family are derived from the part this Duncan Adam took 
in this expedition (Burke's '' Visitation of Seats ana Arms," vol. ii., p. 81). His 

Reginald Adah, in 1385, took pirt in an invasion of Northumberland, con- 
ducted by Sir James Douglas (eleventh Baron and second Earl of Douglas) and John 
de Vienne, Earl of Valentinois and Admiral of Prance (Burke's '* Visitation of Seats 
and Arms," vol. ii., p. 31) ; '* they took the castles of Wark, Foord, and CornwaU, 
and spoiled and burned the country between Berwick and NewcastliB." Under the 
walls of the latter Douglas defeated, in personal encounter. Sir Henry Percy, better 
known as Harry Hotspur, and carried off in triumph his pennon. ^* Bnt when the 
Scottish Chiefs intended to march farther, the continual rain that fell in great 
abundance, it being autumn, did so spoil the roads, raise the waters and wet the 
soldiers in their armour, that they were forced to return home " (Hume's " Hist, of 
the Houses of Douglas and Angus "). It was to redeem his pennon thus taken 
that Percy, invading Scotland in 1388, was defeated and taken prisoner at the 
Battle of Otterbourne, 15 August 1888, where Douglas, though victorious, was slain 
(Smibert's '' Hist, of the Clans of Scotland "). This is the battle celebrated in the 
old Border ballad of '' Chevy Chase." Reginald Adam's lineal descendant, 

Sib John Adah, Knt., accompanied James IV. in his invasion of England 
August 1513, and fell at the Battle of Flodden Field 9 September 1518 (Burke's 
"Visitation of Seats and Arms," vol. ii., p. 31), 

*^ In that undaunted ring 

That fought unbroken round their King *' 

while vainly striving to shield their Sovereign from a similar fate. The conclusion 
of this battle is graphically described by Sir Walter Scott in " Marmion " : — 

^* When skilful Surrey's sage commands, 
Led back from strife hig shattered bands ; 
Then did their loss his foemen know ; 
Their king, their lords, their mightiest low, 
To tell red Flodden's dismal tale, 
And raise the universal wail. 
Tradition, legend, tune and song, 
Shall many an age that wail prolong ; 
Still from the sire the son shall hear 
Of the stern strife and carnage drear 

Of Flodden's fatal field, 
VThen shivered was fair Scotland's spear, 

And broken was her shield.'' 

"Hannion," canto vi. 


Sir John Adam's bod, 

OharIjES Adam, proprietor in 1549 of the estate of Fanno, co. Forfar, married 
Margaret Ferguson, and had issue two sons, Charles, his heir, and David, progenitor 
of the Adams of Kingsbarn, co. Fife, and two daughters (Burke's ** Landed 
Gentry," 1846, vol. i., p. 4). The elder son, 

Charles Adam of Fanno, married Isabel Bisset, a desoendant of the ancient 
family of Lissendrum (Barke's ''Landed Gentry," 1846, vol. i., p. 4), and had 
issue several sons and daughters.* One of the former left a son, 

James Adams, a Colonel in the Army, who, affixing the letter " s " to his patro- 
nymict and settling in the North of Ireland, probably in the county Down, in the 
early part of the seventeenth century, married the Hon. Catheriae Magennis, dau. 
of Arthur Magennis, first Viscount Iveagh, by his wife Lady Sarah O'Neill, dau. of 
Hugh, Earl of Tyrone (Burke's " Landed Gentry," 1862). In 1641 Sir Phelim 
Roe O'Neill, Commander-in-Chief of the Insurgent Army, and cousin of Mrs. Adams, 
was breakfasting at Colonel Adams', and overhearing one of his sentries ask Mrs. 
Adams, who was leading by the hand down stairs her little son James, " Whose 
little heretic brat that was ? " rushed out of the room, and, plunging his sword 
through the soldier's body, exclaimed, " Let him serve as a warning to all how they 
speak disrespectfully of the blood of the O'Neill ! " Colonel Adams was succeeded 
by his son, 

Jambs Adams, Captain in the Army of William III., who distinguished him- 
self at the Battle of the Boyne 1 July 1690 ; married about 1672, and dying left 
two sous, James his heir, and another, father of Samuel Adams of Monaghan, who 
was executor in 1755 to his cousin Allen Adams of Corranearry House, co. Cavan 
(see below), and progenitor of the (now extinct) family of Adams of Monaghan. 
The elder son, 

James Adams of Monaghan, afterwards of Corranearry House, co. Cavan, born 
1673, married 1694 Jane, daughter of William and Margaret Allen of Kilmore, 
CO. Monaghan, and died 19 November 1744, aged 71. Mrs. Adams died 17 March 
1752, aged 75, and both were interred in Knockbride churchyard, co. Cavan, J 
where their tomb still remains outside the south wall of the old church. They were 
succeeded by their only son, 

Allbn Adams of Corranearry House, co. Cavan, born 1708; married about 
1735 Martha (born 1702), daughter of William Higenbotham, Esq. (who died 
1760), and granddaughter of Captain Thomas Higenbotham (who died 1737) by 
his wife Miss Williams, Maid of Honour to Mary II., and daughter of General 
Scurlo^ Williams of Clongill Castle, co. Meath.§ He died 15 December 17-55, aged 
47, and was interred beside his parents. His will, signed 13 May 1755, was proved 

* From Robert, the second but eldest surviving son, is descended the family of Adam of 
Blair Adam, Kinross-shire, Scotland. 

t Bee footnote on p. 6. For some of Colonel Adams* exploits see Appendix. 

I Knockbride Churchyard, enclosing both the present and the old churches, is situated on 
the road from Shercock to Stradone, about four miles from the former village. Corranearry 
Lough bounds two sides of the churchyard, and on a hill, on the opposite side of the Lough, stand 
the remains of Corranearry House, the original residence of the Adamses in Cavan. A short 
distance from it is Castletown House. In the old church, at the S3uth-west corner, is a spacious 
vault belonging to the family of Richard Adams of Shercock House (see p. U) ; but he himself 
lies with his ancestors in the cemetery adjoining. The old church is the place of burial of the 
Rev. Benjamin Adams and his descendants. 

§ By the marriage of Allen Adams with Miss Higenbotham, the Adams family enjoy the 
privilege of being hereditary' freemen of the Borough of Drogheda, which had been granted to 
General Scurlog Williams and his descendants for ever, for the prompt and efficient aid afforded 
by him to the inhabitants of the town in 1690.

* Shercock House was sitnated near the present village of that name. It was the residence 
of the Piers family, to whom Queen Elizabeth granted the manor of Pierscourt. Some of the 
garden wall still remains on the lake shore, to the rear of the market house, next which at the 
end of the town was the entrance-gate and lodge, the avenue corresponding in part to the modern 
road from Shercock to Gannlng*8 town. The house occupied the site of the present Roman 
Oatholic Chapel. In the townland of Leix the boundaries of the Deer Park can still be traced, 
but its extensive woods, which within the memory of the past generation extended, far around, 
have now their existence only in tradition. The mansion was allowed to go to ruin early in the 
nineteenth oentuiy.

Bookplate oi **©artrep/* 

This bookplate, the date of which is between 1770 and 1785, represents the 
arms of Thomas Dawson, who was created, 28 May 1770, Baron Daetriy op 
Dawson's Groyb, co. Monaghan, in the peerage of Ireland. He was snbseqnentlj, 
19 Jane 1785, created Viscount Cremornb in that peerage, and finally, with in 
that case a special remainder, 11 Nov. 1791, Baron Cremorne of Castle Dawson, 
CO. Monaghan, also in that peerage. He was bom 25 Feb. and baptized 2 March 
1725 ; was M.P. for co. Monaghan 1749 — 68, being raised to the peerage in 1770, 
as above stated. His second wife, whom he married 8 May 1770, and whose arms 
(being those of the family of Freme of Lippiat, co. Gloucester) are here given in 
an escutcheon of pretence, was Philadelphia Hannah, daughter of Thomas Freame, 
of Philadelphia in North America, by Margaretta, daughter of the well-known 
William Penn, founder of that city. He died, without surviving issue, 1 March 
1813, in his 88th year, when the Barony of Darfrey &ni the Viscountcy of Cremome 
became extinct, but the Barony of Cremome devolved (according to the special 
remainder) on his great-nephew, Bichard Thomas Dawson, whose son, the 3rd 
Baron, was created, 12 July 1866, Earl of DartRey. 

The arms, (Azure^ three torches erect, argent, inflamed gulea) quartered (in the 
2nd and 3rd quarters) with those of Dawson, are not given in Archdall's *' Lodge's 
Peerage of Ireland" (1789) under the Viscountcy of Cremorne. They are pre- 
sumably* those of Dawson of Dawson's Grove, the heiress of which fartiily married, 
in Nov. 1672, Walter Dawson, of Armagh, by whom she was grandmother of the 
first Peer. They are continued as a quartering by the present [1902] Peer. 

The supporters, (" Two weavers, habited propery each holding in his exterior 
hand a shuttle,") are entirely different from those of the present Peer. 

G. B. C. 

* Mr. G. D. Burtchaell, of the College of Arms, Dublin, writes on this point as under : " The 
quarterly coat is somewhat puzzling. When the first Lord was raised to the Peerage, his arms 
in THB LOBDB ENTBIES, have the 2nd and 3rd quarters blanks which looks as if William 
Hawkins, Ulster, was not satisfied with them. The only explanation seems to be, that they are 
intended for Dawson of Dawson's Grove. The seals on wills before the marriage with that heiress 
have only the plain coat."

[Note. — These Memoranda are confcained in a very small note-book, measuring 
4i by 3 inches, which has been carefully preserved. The writing is usually clear 
and good, but occasionally much cramped. The order, it will be seen, is not always 
strictly chronological. The entries printed first are entirely of a family nature ; 
those beginning at the other end of the book and printed second are more general, 
though they begin with the solemn and interesting record of the renewal of the 
baptismal vow and reception of the Holy Eucharist by the writer on the twenty- 
first anniversary of his baptism. That and the earlier entries are in Latin, the rest 
in English. The Rev. W. P. Ourtoys will be glad to communicate with any 
reader who can throw light upon persons or families herein alluded to.]

The Journal of the Ex LibrU Society, Vol. XI., Parts 11, 12, 13, and 14, for NoTember 1901 
to February 1902. London : A. and 0. Black, Soho Square, W. 

The November Part enlarges upon the number of foreign journals following the footsteps of our 
English product ; thus the Editor complains of his German colleague '* Ex Libris Zeitschrift" 
not sending Numbers in collective order ; then he notices the journal of the French collectors, 
and gives us a good account of its contents; then the October Number of "Zeitschrift fiir 
Biicherfreunde " he reviews, and again its November Number ; lastly, from Switzerland in its 
** Archives Heraldiques Suisses " for 1901 ; and from the (German Bookplate Society the Editor 
is going to cull, from the pen of Count Leiningen-Westerburg, the blocks of all the Royal plates, 
which will keep alive the memory of her late Most Gracious Majesty. In the *' Queen " for 
November 1901 is an able Paper by Sir Arthur Vicars, and the " Studio" is also referred to for 
its lengthy article, well illustrated, of the " Art of Gordon Craig," with many examples. Last, 
not least, in the '* American Printer" for November, with its own notes on bookplates, three of 
which are represented, is a review by the Editor of a new periodical entitled " Acadiensis,'* 
published at St. John, New Brunswick. The Part has as an introduction the arms of C. Ellis 
Stevens of Philadelphia, and is a good example of engraving and mantling ; and there are also 
some excellent examples of skill by Mr. William Edgar, delicate and apropos^ the sporting plate 
of Silvanus Macy being full of good drawing. The plates for identification now reach 485. 

The December Number is well illustrated by the arms of Her late Majesty, as reproduced by 
Count Leiningen-Westerburg, which makes it a valuable one, as the arms are elaborately drawn. 
The life of William Hewer, begun by Mr. Arthur J. Jewers in the November Part, is here con- 
tinued by Mr. Cecil T. Davis, and his arms given. The writer makes the account very interesting 
by his associating Pepys and John Evelyn of Wotton with it, and by his knowledge of Hewer^s 
connections. There is the plate drawn for the Lowell Memorial Library, and with it a good 
description ; and also the bookplate of William Hugh Patterson of Belfast, having a smaller one 
suspended from it. ' The plate has the portrait of the gentleman given, and is surrounded by a 
shamrock border. This practice had better not be indulged in too much in heraldry, as every 
tinker and tailor will have his arms to give away, if even procured from 'Appy 'Ampstead for 
a sixpenny photograph. An article by Mr. Charles Dexter Allen, with the plate of Dr. Van 
Dyke's shewn, and in which he announces a " College of Heraldry in America," is interesting. 

The Part for January has for frontispiece the two plates of the Empress Frederick of 
Germany, and also a small oval label which the Empress might place on it, possibly made 
adhesive. Each is very chaste, worthy of the illustrious lady so esteemed in England. There is 
a letter also from Mr. W. F. Prideaux, completing the account of Hewer Edgley Hewer com- 
menced by Mr. A. J. Jewers in the November Part. The writer also draws the attention of his 
readers to the error of coupling the Latin ^^Ex Libris" with English names, and he instances 
^ Ex Libris Sylvanus " as one which would meet with correction in any school. As he says, why 
should Latin be employed on English bookplates any more than on modem tombstones? The 
Editor closes this Part with the usual Title and Contents, and a painstaking Index. 

The February Part (which has been delayed until the middle of March, more through the 
Editor having a giant^s task to perform monthly with barely any assistance from his compeers) 
opens with a Fapcr on Sir Philip Sydenham by Caruegy Johnson, and the frontispiece is a large 
arms of Sydenham with profuse mantling ; there are six other arms of his also given. The 
account of Hewer is next taken up by Mr. Alfred A. Beihune-Baker. F.S.A., who gives another 
coat to him while he was at Clapbam, and while he kept up a London establishment between 
1710 — 1728. The Part still carries on the Bookplates of Medical Men, and the plates for 
identification now reach 497. Its other contents are but meagre. 


The Virginia Magazine oj Higtory and Biography, No. 3, Vol. IX. January 1902. Virginia 

Historical Society, Richmond, U.S.A. 
This Part commences with the letters of William Bird of Westoner, Virginia, and many 
instances are given of the original animals which were found on the native soil when first 
settlements were made, there being in Georgia plenty of cattle and hogs, sheep and goats, and 
particularly a large creature of the beef kind, being the buffalo, which may be bred up tame, 
and is good both for food and labour. Besides these there are vineyards which twist round 
every tree, and where from the mulbeny trees they could produce silk to any extent, and also as 
fine a flax as any in the universe for linen manufacture. Hemp also can be raised for cordage, and 
there is also a silk grass which is much stronger than hemp. Of oil from nuts there could be 
produced any quantity, and there is also what is called a sugar tree, from which could be drawn 
spirits equal to arrack. Such was North Carolina about 1735. Other interesting Papers 
follow. In one entitled Henry County is a table giving the quantity of tobacco each paid 
towards the County Rate { thus the Clerk was assessed at 1248 "thyables" of 27 lbs. tobacco 
per poll, and it comes down to 25 for one day's guard, shewing what a powerful agent tobacco 
was then, as 500 were paid for maintaining a prisoner thirteen days. There are the genealogies 
of the families of Adams, Brookes, Herndon, Farrar, and Fowler given, as well as Notes and 
Queries respecting other families. 

Fenland Notes and Queriet, Vol. V^, Part 62. January 1902. Peterborough : George 0. Caster, 

Market Place. 
This Part commences with a short account of Raimond Guches, a Huguenot, the bold and 
earnest champion of the cause in 1660, who single-handed stood out among the mass of 
corruption gathered round Louis XIV. Another Paper by Henry Peet, Esq., gives an account 
of Mr. James Coleman, a Tottenham bookseller, who had purchased a bundle of parchments, 
among which was a leaf containing 200 entries of marriages solemnized in St. Mary's Church, 
Whittlesey, dated 1662 to 1672. How such a practice of tearing up registers should have been 
going on in modern days, when such a scholar as Dr. Henry Burgess was vicar at St. Andrew's, 
Whittlesey, a neighbouring church to St. Mary's, from 1861 to 1870 upwards, we cannot under- 
stand, as he was a scholar of vast ability, and published a work in Coptic, besides being 
editor of the ** Journal of Sacred Literature " for some years, during which time he must have 
had sueh documents under his care. Mr. Peet says the registers are virtually destroyed, consisting 
now of about thirty-six loose fragments of portions of parchment leaves, gall-stained, mildewed, 
and moth-eaten, and almost undecipherable. Not a page is perfect. Only one thin folio volume 
is saved, covering the years 1683, 1688—1694. 

Wb are pleased to see the progress this Society is making in printing the smaller registers of 
English counties. Since 1896 there were five a year issued, and in 1899 as many as ten 
registers, some only making twenty-four pages, while others extended to hundreds of pages, and 
each supplied with an Index Locorum and an Index Nominum. We thus see that with few 
exceptions there is a fair chance of every register being published. Our own Magazine began it 
when nothing of the kind had been attempted ; our Publishers published several at their own 
cost, and then the Harleian Society, with its separate funds and membership, printed every year 
one or two, and combatted what a weaker society could not venture upon, by printing the 
Registers of St. James, Clerkenwell, in six volumes. There are some still requiring to be 
printed, but the expense of transcribing and printing have hitherto stood in the way. The most 
valuable we know of are the Registers of St. Anne, Soho, making possibly six volumes, and 
containing as they do the birth of a Royal Prince, besides being the home of so many of the 
aristocracy, these being followed by the historians, speakers, musicians, and the general art 
world of 1700 and 1800, the fashionable world still going westward, beginning with St. Gkorge's 
in the Bays water district about the middle of 1700. The parish churchyard is also the last 
home of hundreds of Huguenots, who fied from France aud settled in SoHo al^out 1500 qntil 


1700. A member of the Vestry of Soho has done great senrice in saving its registers from 
mildew and damp by adopting a separate iron safe instead of having them enclosed between 
brick walls with iron back and front, which the Rector soon found was no improvement upon a 
wooden cupboard. Each book has been preserved with tissue paper at the edges where at all 
giving way, thus preserving the writing, and the whole registers now make thirty-seven large 
folio volumes, half-bound in green vellum, and each book lettered on the back whether baptisms, 
marriages, or burials, and dated consecutively. Thus the little parish of Soho has done single- 
handed what even the wealthy parish of St. George^s or St. Martin's have not yet begun, beyond 
one volume published by the latter parish in conjunction with the Harleian Society, and this 
has all been done in Soho by gentlemen who were in the Vestry, and who knew the task they 
had undertaken, seconded as they were by the public spirit of the Rector and their fellow 
members. A case in point where disaster has been almost complete is the parish of Whittlesey, 
Cambridgeshire, where the registers abont 1690 are in a most deplorable state, and have also 
suffered from ill-usage by some irresponsible meddler. It was first discovered by Mr. Coleman, 
a Tottenham bookseller, among an odd lot of parchments which he bought, who found a leaf 
containing 200 entries of marriages in St Mary's Church between 1662 and 1672. He kindly 
returned the leaf to the then Vicar of Whittlesey, and besides published a pamphlet of eight 
pages of these marriages. The Rev. W. D. Sweeting, the Editor of " Fenland Notes and Queries,*' 
a notice of which we give above, writes : " The oldest register is 1660 ; for upwards of 100 years 
they are unbound, detached leaves much worn, and in many cases illegible." Some leaves are 
torn from top to bottom, and this must have been done since 1827, for a note written then by a 
churchwarden is also itself torn in half. ^ If the Register Society will rescue what is still left of 
these registers, now is the time to do it, and may success attend their labours, both in this case 
and in many others.

During the preparation of my Work on '* The Langstaffs of Teesdale and Weardale," I have 
collected a good deal of information relative to the family of I^angstroth or Langstreth. This 
I will be happy to place at the disposal of any one interested in that family. The name seems 
to be quite distinct from Langstaff, whereas LangstraflEe is certainly, Langstrop probably, a mere 
variant of Langstaff.

Maltravers Herald Extraordinary. 

The Subscribers to the "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica" will have heard 
with much regret of the death of Dr. Joseph Jackson Howard, who originated this 
Magazine in 1866, and has edited it with sach marked ability ever since. It seems 
therefore fitting that a short memoir of his life should appear in the first issne after 
his death. 

Joseph Jackson Howard of Mayfield, Blackheath,wa8 born on the 12th of April 
1827, being the only son of Peter Howard of Woodside in Cheshire by Jane Hayston, 
daughter of Ralph Prince of Mount Veiiion Priory, Edge Hill, Liverpool. He was 
christened at St. Mary's, Edge Hill, on the 14th of June in the same year, and 
married on the 26th of July 1862, at St. Mark's, Kennington, Ellen Clara, daughter 
of Joshua West and Mary Ann his wife. He died on the 18th of April 1902 at the 
residence of his son, Fairlight, Hampton Hill, and was buried on the 22nd of the 
same month at Twickenham Cemetery. His widow survives him, as also an only 
son. Dr. A. Dash wood Howaixl. He was admitted Pensioner at Trinity Hall, 
Cambridge, on the 17th of June 1845, graduated LL.B. in 1854, and took his 
LL.D. degree in 1859. 

Dr. Howard's business life was spent in the Civil Service, which he entered as 
a junior clerk in the Accountant-Qenerars Office at the Oeneral Post Office on the 
lOth of October 1851, rising to be a principal clerk on the 13th of May 1867. 
He retired in April 1888, after thirty-seven yeara' continual service. He was popular 
in the Office, and was a much respected Civil Servant. He was also one of the 
Pioneers of Civil Service Co-operative Stores, and started the " Post Office Supply " 
in the Receiver and Accountant Generals' Offices at the Post Office, and was made 
Chairman of the Society. Persons from other offices were allowed to join, and this 
eventually developed into the Civil Service Supply Association, Limited, of which 
he was Chairman. 

Very early in life he acquired a taste for heraldry and genealogy, spending 
nearly all his leisure on these pursuits. He became a Fellow of the Society of 
Antiquaries on the 2nd of February 1854, and at the time of his death was eighth 
in seniority of such Fellows. For several years he made frequent contributions to 
their Meetings, principally by exhibiting ancient pedigrees, grants of arms, and 
heraldic seals from ancient deeds, all of which are very fully recorded in the printed 
Proceedings of that Society and in the " Archaeologia." He was instrumental in 
1860 (in conjunction with the late Sir A. W. Franks) in collecting materials for an 
Exhibition of Civic Plate, which was held in the Society's Rooms then at Somerset 
House, and the year following he contributed a similar Exhibition of Seals. In 
May 1862 (in conjunction with T. W. King, Esq., F.S.A., York Herald) he 
collected materials for an Exhibition of Heraldry, which was also held in the 
Society's Rooms, and for which he received the especial thanks of the Society. 
YOIi. v., 8ERI£S III. £ 


To the more recent Heraldic Exhibition, held at the Society's present Rooms in 
Burlington House in 1894 (of which an illustrated catalogue was published), 
Dr. Howard was a considerable contributor, and was also a member of the 

He was an indefatigable collector, and was one of the earliest, if not the 
first, who commenced a collection of Armorial Bookplates, which collection it is 
believed is unique, being valuable not only for its magnitude, but for the scarcity 
and brilliancy of most of the specimens it contains. He also made a splendid 
collection of Armorial China, hot improbably the choicest in existence. 

He was, however, best known to the readers of the " Miscellanea " as a prolific 
writer. No correspondent ever wrote to him in vain, and he spared neither 
time nor trouble to give to all, whether acquaintances or strangers, the best inform- 
ation he had on genealogical and heraldic subjects, without expecting or receiving 
any recompence whatever. His charming manner and readiness to help in any 
investigation endeared him to all who came in contact with him, either personally 
or by correspondence. He might well be called the leader of a new school of 
genealogists, who sought for truth and accuracy and for evidence of all their state- 
ments. The desire to spread these principles led him to initiate the publication of 
this Journal so long as thirty-six years ago, and fortunate are those Subscribers 
who possess a complete set of the Work, the two volumes which complete the 
original series being extremely rare. Some idea of the daily labour devoted to this 
task may be realized by looking back on the earlier Numbers, which are full of every 
kind of information, embellished by facsimiles of numerous illuminated grants of 
arms and hundreds of bookplates, mostly from his own collection. It has been 
announced that the publication of this Journal will be continued. 

He had a great taste for heraldic engraving, and would never employ a second- 
class artist for any work. Some of his happiest hours were spent in discussing with 
his friends the respective merits of the best heraldic artists. 

It is, however, by Dr. Howard's connection with the Harleian Society that 
perhaps he is best known to genealogists. He was one of the founders of that 
Society, and acted as Honorary Treasurer from the day of its foundation in 1869 
to the end of last year. He edited for the Society (in conjunction with his 
co-founder the Honorary Secretary) the firat volume of its publications, "The 
Visitation of London in the Year 1668, taken by Robert Cooke," and he also 
edited (in conjunction with the late Colonel Chester) "The Visitation of London, 
1633-35, made by Sir Henry St. George.*' This work, in two volumes, was 
illustrated with over 800 coats of arms engraved by Cleghom and Utting. In 
1861 he edited for the Kent Archaeological Society (and also printed privately), 
pedigrees from " Philipot's Visitation of Kent in 1619." In 1866 he edited for the 
" Bast Anglian " and also printed separately, two volumes of " Harvey's Visitation 
of Suffolk in 1561," containing twenty-one pedigrees of the families of Chetham, 
Clopton, Colt, Cordell, Crane, Daniell, Eden, Fultneby, Hervey, Heigham, Holt, 
Kempe, Kytson, Lucas, Martin, Payne, Peyton, Poley, Smyth, Spring, and 
Warburton, all of which are annotated. 

In July 1866 he commenced the issue of the "Miscellanea Genealogica et 
Heraldica " in Quarterly Numbers at 2s. 6^. each. This, however, subsequently 
became a monthly publication at Is., and so continued until it was concluded in 


four volumes, entitled the "New Series," a title not to be confused with the 
"Second Series" which followed in January 1884, and was completed in five 
volumes. A Third Series was begun in March 1894, reverting to the Quarterly 
Numbers, and is still in progress, being now in its fifth volume. 

In 1887 he commenced a collection of Privately Printed Pedigrees, illustrating 
the History of Roman Catholic Families in England, based on the Lawson Manu- 
script. This most valuable and elaborate work, which contains, however, but six 
large and fully annotated pedigrees, viz., Fermor, Petre, Hunloke, Phelips, Arundell, 
and Hornyold, was discontinued in 1895. 

In 1887 (in conjunction with Mr. Eobert Hovenden) he printed " Some 
Pedigrees from the Visitation of Kent; from 1668 to 1668." There are, however, 
but twelve of these pedigrees, all with copious annotations, viz., Dade, Edolph, 
Gokin, Jordan, Kitchell, Langworth, Lynch, Petley, Scott, Seyliard, Sheafe, and 
Turner. He also edited in 1888 Sir Edward Bysshe's "Visitation of the County 
of Essex, 1664—68." 

In 1898 he embarked with F. A. Crisp, Esq., F.S.A., on a joint work (privately 
printed for Subscribers only), entitled " The Visitation of England and Wales," 
of which nine volumes have been issued with three volumes of notes, and which is 
still in progress. It contains very full pedigrees of existing families carried out on 
the principle of the older Visitations, the evidence being confined to no more than 
two generations older or younger than the informant. This work is embellished 
with many engravings of arms and signatures. 

In 1897 Dr. Howard and Mr. Crisp commenced a similar publication relating 
to Irish families. 

It is satisfactory to know that these Visitations and Notes will be continued. 

He printed in 1894 (in conjunction with H. F. Burke, Esq., F.S.A., Somerset 
Herald), for private circulation, a book called " Theydon Mount : its Lords and 
Rectors " (notably of the family of Smith, of Hill Hall, Baronets), with a complete 
transcript of the Parish Registers and Monumental Inscriptions. 

He issued in 1895 a volume of facsimiles of Baronets' Bookplates from his own 
collection, called the " Wardour Press Series." 

T)t. Howard was on the Council of the Kent and Surrey Archaeological Societies 
from their foundation. He was a constant contributor on Antiquarian subjects to 
" Notes and Queries," " The Athenseum," and many other periodicals. 

On the 26th of November 1887 " the Queen was graciously pleased, on the 
nomination of His Grace the Earl Marshal, to appoint Joseph Jackson Howard, 
Esq., to be Maltravers Herald Extraordinary," a distinction well earned and 
deserved by one of the most painstaking and energetic of our genealogists.

As ANNOUNCED in the Prefatory Note appended to the Fourth Volume, 
and published early this year, Mr. W. Bbuce Bannebman, F.S.A., has 
kindly undertaken to co-operate in the Editorship in future, and trusts to 
be favoured by Contributors with Papers on Genealogy, Family History, 
and Bookplates, also copies from Monumental Inscriptions, both abroad 
and at home. All correspondence to be addressed to the Publishing 
Ofl&ce, 140 Wardour Street, W. 

In the note at p. 283, in continaatioD of the account of the '^ Family of the 
Dudleys *' (Vol. IV., pp. 259—263), it is suggested that an abstract of the will of 
this lady, giving all relations named, would be interesting. The will is a very long 
one, taken up for the most part by charitable bequests, of which particulars are given 
in the above account; but the will is disappointing as regards the lady's relations, 
as shewn by the following abstract, which gives the chief points omitted in that 
notice, and mentions all relations named. It may be mentioned here that the copy 
of her epitaph printed in the " New View of Loudon " is incorrect in mauy minor 
details, as shewn bv a careful copy of all the inscriptions in the church of St. Giles- 
in-the-Fields, which it is hoped will be printed before long, but the second part of 
the inscription, with the arms, etc., has entirely disappeared.

a period of three years and a half he saw much active service, bore 
a part in many gun-boat actions, and among other vessels assisted 
in destroying, after a sharp engagement, a notorious privateer, the 
'^ Fort of Gibraltar." He was also present as a Midshipman in a 
very gallant encounter off Genoa between the boats of the " Scout " 
and a French Squadron, consisting of a brig of 20 guns, one of 18, 
and seven gun-boats protected by a heavy fire from several batteries 
on shore, in face of which the largest of the enemy's vessels was 
sunk and the remainder beaten off, with a loss,- however, to the 
British of the Master and eleven men killed and upwards of thirty 
wounded. On the night of 31 October 1809 Mr. Adams further 
served in the boats of the " Scout " and of a squadron under Lieut. 
John Tailour* at the capture and destruction, after a fearful struggle 
and a loss to the assailants of 15 men killed and 55 wounded, of 
the armed store-ship " Lamproire " of 16 guns and llfi men, the 
bombards " Victoire " and " Grondeur," and the armed zebec 
"Normande," with a convoy of seven merchantmen defended by 
numerous strong batteries in the Bay of Rosas. Removing next in 
succession to the "Voluntaire" and "Cambrian" frigates, both 
commanded by Captain Charles BuUen, he joined in various cutting- 
out affairs, witnessed the reduction of the Island of Pom^gue near 
Marseilles, and co-operated in the defence of Tarragona in May 
and June 1811 until the receipt of his Lieutenant^s Commission, 
dated 15 February 1815; appointed to the *'Ajax, 74," Captain 
George Mundy, 31 May 1815, and the " Hind," Captain Sir Charles 
Burrard, 17 April 1819 (O'Byrne's " Naval Biography "). He 
joined the "Ajax,"t and in her was present at the bombard- 
ment of Algiers 27 August 1816 by the British Fleet under Lord 
Exmouth (Family Reg.). He afterwards served in the Channel and 
Mediterranean, on board the " Bulwark, 74," Captains Sir Richard 
King and Thomas Brown, the " Christian VIl., 80,"t Captain 

* Of the Swords family. 

t Launched in 1808, and replaced the *• Ajax " which had been burnt in 1807 (James* "Nayal 
History," 1847, vol. v., p. 3). 

J This line of battleship was pierced for eighty-four guns and was added to the British Navy, 
the result of the siege of Copenhagen in 1807. She nieawired 2,131 tons, and was built in 1803 
by the Danes. The model of the '* Christian VII.'' was so much admired that a ship in every 
respect the same was immediately ordered to be built for the Bi-itish Navy. That ship was the 
" Cambridge " of 2,139 tons, launched in 1815 (James' " Naval History,'' vol. iv., p. 295. London, 


Henry Lidgbird Ball, and the " Grasshopper, 18," Captains Henry 
Robert Battersby and Sir Charles Bnrrard ; appointed 24 September

" Grasshopper, 18," Captain John George Aplin ; 8 November 1824 
to the command, on the Newfoundland station, of the ^* Pelter "

igot, by whom he was also invested with the charge of a tender ; 
20 October 1826 and 17 September 1828 as Senior to the " Harrier" 
and " Childers " sloops, botn commanded by Captain William Morier 
(for his exertions in saving the latter, which was nearly wrecked in 
a violent gale off Yarmouth, he received the approbation of the 
Admiralty) ; 4 May 1829 in a similar capacity to the " AthoU, 28," 
Captain Alexander Gordon, on the coast of Africa ; 6 January 1880 
to the command of the " Phimper, 12," on the same station, where 
in a small gig with only five men he gallantly effected the capture, 
7 November 1830, of the " Maria " of six guns and forty-four men, 
having on board 512 slaves, and was otherwise very successful ; 
28 July 1831 as First Lieutenant to the "Alfred, 60," Captain 
Robert Maunsell, in the Mediterranean, and 17 November 1884 to 
the command of the " Waterwitch, 10," in which vessel he served 
under the orders of Lord John Hay on the north coast of Spain, and 
was again successful in his anti-slavery exertions on the African 
station, attaining the rank of Commander 10 January 1887. He was 
appointed 19 January 1839 to the '\Acorn, 16," destined for the 
same service, as was latterly the " Waterwitch." Returning there- 
fore to the coast of Africa, he renewed his operations against the 
negro traffic during a prolonged service of four years and eight 
months, during part of which period he had charge of the station 
and squadron at Mozambique, cruising with wonderful activity and 
good fortune. Among the prodigious number of prizes made by the 
" Acorn " we may instance the capture, 6 July 1841, after a three 
days* chase and a running fight, of the " Gabriel," a piratical slave- 
brig, notorious for its injury to commerce and the frequency of its 
insults to the British Flag. His long, arduous, and highlv useful 
services were at length rewarded, on his return to England, with a 
Post Commission, dated 18 December 1848. In 1849 he held the 
Civil appointment of Slave Commissioner at Loango (O'Byrne's 
"Naval Biography," p. 4) ; was appointed 4 January 1850 Captain 
of the " Gl^iator, 6 " on the African coast, and 10 April 1854 to 
the "Scourge, 6," and Commodore of the African Squadron, 
Governor of Ascension Island, etc. In 1862 was offered but declined 
the Governorship of Greenwich Hospital. Became Rear-Admiral 
of the Blue 6 February 1868, and of the White 6 March 1864.

08fttn of S^ix Batj^amrl Wiicbt, i635.« 

A Breife conteyning my resoluc'on for the disposing of my estate according to 
the snbstance whereof I intend if God give me life and leisure to drawe app my last 
Will and Testam* w®^ if I should be disappointed in I appoint that this shalbe in 
the nature of a Will and that all my lands goods and chattels shalbe disposed 
according to the tenor of the particulers hereunder menconed. This being made 
this second daye of December 1685. 

First I will that all form' Wills heretofore by me made shalbe utterly voyd for 
that the same are not according to my minde & meaning. My soule I bequeath 
and comend to God my Father in Jesus Christ, niy body to be privately buried in 
the night without any fun^alls pompe or mourning, the place I leave to the dis- 
cretion of my Executors the R. hobble the Lord Mandehill whome I nominate and 
appoint sole Executor of my last Will & Testament, but if conveniencie yt maye be 
I would be buried at Stoudon in Essex in the Parrish Church there, onely I would 
have my Executor erect some monument forme where ever I be buryed the same 
not exceeding the some of fyftie pounds or a hundred markes. I would onely haue 
my sisters and brothers in lawe and their childeren and all my servantes to have 
monrneiug suites of black clothe. My manor of Stondon and all my lands in Essex 
I give to my nephew Nathaniel Riche when he comes to the age of one and twentie 
years, in the meantime my Executor to receave the rent and to allowe him fower- 
score pounds p' ann' for his educac'on for sometyme at the Uuiversitie of Cambridge 
and then at Lincolnes Inne yt being my desire that he should study and professe 
the lawe. I give the profit of seaven of my shares in the Barmudaes now called 
the 8o*mer Islands to my sister Grimsdiche and her husband dureing their lives if 
they will goe and inhabit uppon them and One hundred and fyftie pounds in money 
for the transporting of themselves and such of their children as they shall thinke 
fitt to carry with them. I give one other share to my nephue Robert Browne now 
residing in the said So*mer Islands he haveing one other share there already uppon 
the guif t of my Sister Wroth lately deceased. I give one other share there to ... . 
Browne one other of the Sonnes of my sister Browne deceased, whoe hath beene 
hetheilK) educated by my noble frend the Couutesse of Leicester, mother to Sir John 
Smith. The residue of my shares there being fyve I give for the maintenance of a 
free schoole in those islands w^^ my desire is should first be erected out of the 
profits of the said fyve shares by the direcc'on of my Executor and then layed for 
ev^^ to the said Schoole. The Schoole Master to be nominated and chosen by my 
Executor and his noble ladye and after their decease by such religions and discreete 
feoffees as they shall appoint. My desire is that some of the Indian children to be 
brought either from Virginia or New England or some other continent of America 
such as my Executor shall thinke fittest maye be brought over there to be instructed 
in the knowledge of true religion. And to the end that my Executor may better 
pTorme the trust committed to him in the disposing of all the said shares I doe give 
the inheritance and freehould of them all to his Iopp prayeing the Honorable Court of 
Adventurers for those Islands that immediately after my decease he may be admitted 
to them To have and to hould for him and his heires for ev* Nev'theles upon the 
trust formerly menc'oned and not any wages to his owne use. But in case my said 
brother in lawe M.^ Grimsdich and his wife will not w^^in one yeare after my decease 
soe thither in their owne p'sons to lyve there then I will not that either of them 
have any benefit by this guift nnles by the hand of God they shalbe hindered. 
But that in that case my Executor take the yearly p'ffitt of those shares and 
imploy raysed thereby for three yeares towards the erecc'on of the said free schoole 
and then passe over the inheritance of the said seaven shares to such childe or 
children of my said brother and sister Grimsditch as he shall conceave to be most 
worthy, as alsoe i com'itt the guift of the inheritance of the said shai-es to be dis- 
posed of for the benefit of such childe or children by my Executor in case they 

* Commnnicated by J. R. Bbown, Esq., F.R.G,8. 


shall goe and Ijve there after their decease my meaneing being that my said 
brother in lawe and his wife should have the use of those seaven shares during their 
lyves in case they lyve there else not, but in noe case to dispose of the inheritance 
the care whereof I leave wholly to my Executor for the good and benefit of their 
children especially such as by their vertue, diligence, and good course of life shall 
deserve best. I give to Nathaniell Browne now in New England w^^ M' Hooker 
the two hundred pounds w^^ by my sister Morgan's Will was bequeathed unto him 
and fyftie pounds more as my owne guift w®*" two hundred and fyf tie pounds I 
would have M' Hooker imploye dureing the minority of the said Nathaniel Browne 
for and towards his educac'on, payeing himself for his charges. This I would 
have done within one yeare after my decease. Item I give unto Samuell Browne 
one other sonne of my said sister Browne one hundred pounds in money The same 
to be imployed during his minority for his benefit as my Executor shall thinke 
most fitt. The Rectory of Nevorne in Pembrokeshire in Wales I give to my said 
Executor and heires for eV upon the trust and confidence that he shall make sale 
thereof assoone as conveniently he can and dispose the money arising by sale 
thereof and of the rents till yt be soulde for the p'formance of this my last Will 
and Testament. I give unto Thomas Grimsditch the eldest sonne of my brother 
Grimsditch whoe is now in the Isle of Providence the fourtie poundes p' ann. anuity 
which my lorde of Warwicke is to paye dureing the life of the said Thomas. I give 
to Thomas Allaby my servant One hundred pounds. To Jonas Anger tenn pounds 
p' ann. dureing his life. The said tenn pounds p' ann. to be yssueing out of my 
manner of Stondon w**» power to distreyne and a nomine pene of six pence per diem 
every daye that yt shall be unpayed within thirty daies after Michaelmas and our 
Lady day, my meaning being that yt shalbe payed him half yearly at the said Feasts 
and I give him tenn pounds in money. I give unto John .... my footeman tenn 
pounds in money and fourtie shillings a yeare during his life yssueing out of my 
said manner to be payed half yearly as the other and with like power of distress 
and nomine pene not of vi*" a daye but of twelve pence a weeke for every weeke 
that yt shalbe behinde unpayed. AH my goods, chattells, leases of what kinde or 
nature soever not formerly disposed of other then such legacies as hereafter I shall 
expresse either by worde before two credible witnesses or by haudwriteing I give to 
my said Executor and his most noble Lady in testimony of my thankfuUnes unto 
them for all their favours and of the humble and harty affecc'on I iustly beare unto 
them. I give unto William Jesopp more than formerly in my life tyme I have 
given him fyftie pounds. All my weareing lynnen and apparell I desire my Executor 
to distribute amongst my brother Grimsdich and mv Servants according to his 
owne discretion wherein I would have Thomas Allabie that waites on me to be 
especially respected, onely one suite such as my Executor shall thinke fitt I give to 
Will" Jesopp. And whereas here is in M' Goffes hands that was some tyme 
Steward to my lorde of Warwicke a Statute taken in his name for a thousand 
pounds debt are to my said Lord and myself fyve hundred pounds whereof being 
the one half belongs to me I doe hereby give unto that my deare and noble Lord 
the sayd fyve hundred pounds as a testimoney of my humble affection to him and 
thankfuUnes for his love and favour towards me. Item I give unto the R^ 
Honoble my very noble Lord the Earle of Holland One hundred pounds and 
another hundred pounds to his noble Lady part of the money w«^ his Iopp oweth me 
and fyftie pounds p'cell of the said debt to my noble Ladye the Lady Essex Cheek. 
The Druraond Ring w^** I usually weare it being ray sister Wrothes legacie to mee I 
give to my brother Wroth. My Emerod Ring w^^* I usually weare I give to my 
dear and most vertuous frend M'^» Mary Moore, Widdowe. I doe p'ticulerly give 
to my deare most noble and religious Lady the Lady Mandeville all that annuity of

Fenland Notes and Queries, Vol. V., Part 53. April 1902. Peterborough : George C. Caster, 

Market Place. 
This Part contains some interesting docnments respecting the drainage of the Fens, which 
seems to have required a great deal of attention and vast sums. Dnring Charles I. and 
Charles II.*s reigns the taxation was large, and in James's time the second tax was a double one, 
and a third was called for, and even Londoners were assessed at £80. The King had a great 
aversion to the Commons on account of supplies he was continually wanting. He wanted 
£150,000 a year and looked to the Fens to obtain it. The Whittlesey Parish Marriage Registers 
are next given where they can be decipherable, on one leaf of 100 entries only ten being 
legible. The Begisters of Rt. Mary's in Whittlesey are added for 1683; in many cases 
leaves are missing, some are torn across with one half leaf, and others are detached, lying quite 
loose. The book only consists of eighteen leaves of paper in leather, and contains entries of 
baptisms and of burials from 1683 to 1694. Surely the Parish fiegister Society ought to make 
a visit to Cambridgeshire a special one, so as to embrace the county, exoept a Local Society is 
started, such as is being done for the county of Surrey at the present time. The Editor is enabled 
to announce that the Duke of Bedford is going to defray the cost of printing the Thomey French 
Begisters under the auspices of the Huguenot Society, with Mr. Henry Peet, F.S.A., as editor. 

The Journal of the Ex Libris Society, Vol. XII., Parts 3, 4, and 5, March to May 1902. 

London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 
The March Part is embellished by two separate plates, which render it very acceptable. The 
one forming the frontispiece shews a circular library with the symbols of the arts and sciences 
shewn on the foreground, and at the top the portrait of the celebrated Dr. J. C. W. Moehsen, 
hung with tapestry on both sides ; it is dated 1 September 1753. The whole forms a massive 
and well proportioned bookplate, and the portrait is in that Georgian style which was so 
popular a centuiy ago. There is an article on Musical Bookplates by J. F. Verster, and the Editor 
has another on **Art in Modem Bookplates," in which he ably combats the opinion of 
Mr. Dennis in The Artist, The Ireland Bookplates are next given, with a brief account of the 
gifted young man allowed to go wrong, the son of a man " Shakespere mad," who cast him off 
when not yet nineteen years old only for his own selfish sake after the son's confession. When 
pondered on, what a sacrifice of talent to imitate ink, parchment, time-stained vellum, and all 
to deceive, whereas it is said he was going to write dramas on history from William the 
Conqueror downwards I The wonder is that in that grand period of English literature from 
1800 to 1835 there was no one found to have given the misdirected young man advice so as to 
have utilized bis talents iu a more successful way, as he seems to have passed away unnoticed 
about 1835. He wrote on one occasion, " I was for twelve months at Dr. Barrow's Academy in 
Soho Square, and the dismal play performed by the scholars at the breaking up was Shakespere's 
tragedy of King Lear." Years after he wrote on old paper and in a disguised hand the spurious 
manuscripts concocted at the time. The arms of the Rev. W. B. Barrow, LL.D., are given, 
addressed at foot, '* Academy, Soho Square, 1789.'' 

The April Part opens with a good account of the late Cecil John Rhodes, with his plate, a 
rarity which very few have. Had an artist designed it for a drawing-room picture it might 
have been engraved like that of the death of Moore, but to utilize it as a bookplate is merely 
a subterfuge, as it represents him trading with the natives on the first landing of the Dutch at 
the Cape. There is a pleasing account by Mr. Cecil T. Davis of Dr. Andrew Colte^ Ducarel 
with his arms given, who was appointed Librarian of the Lambeth Palace Library ; and a good 
impression is given of the bookplate of the Right Hon. Arthur J. Balfour, designed by 
Miss C. Helard. The plates of Medical Men are still continued, and the arms for identification 
now number 605. 

The May Part being upwards of a month late prevents us going into any detail of its con- 
tents, only to remark that it may be called the Royal Number, having King Edward's Arms as 


the frontispiece, and the two smaller ones for the Eoyal Library, all etched by Mr. George W. 
Eve, in his usual dexterous manner, marking him out as a draughtsman second to none. We 
congratulate the Editor of the " Ex Libris Journal ** upon having the priTilege of publishing 
these coats at such an opportune time. The other contents comprise an article on Exeter 
Cathedral Library, with two representations of its seal, one of 1749, another of 1822 ; and there 
follows a short account of Lord Nelson's bookplates. 

The Virginia Magazine of Jligtory and Biography, No. 4, Vol. IX. April 1902. Virginia 

Historical Society, Richmond, U.S.A. 
The Number begins with an interesting account of the Germans in the Shenandoah Valley, and 
what a magnificent aspect the whole bore after the fatigue of days trayelling. The Virginia 
Legislative documents are next treated of, and abridgement of the Laws in 1694. The interest 
in the Part is the publication of the John Brown letters, long looked for but only found in the 
Virginia State Library in 1901. Mr. Scott the Librarian had made enquiries about these letters 
in 1894, but was told that every librarian since the war had exhausted all means of finding them, 
but without success. It was only a final searching for a state document, which had been 
missing, that the dust-covered bundle of John Brown's papers came to light. To Americans the 
papers will be very interesting, as well as the account of the battle of Point Pleasant, when the 
first troops were raised after the cargo of tea had been thrown into the sea by the people of 
Boston. A distinguished writer, who saw the troops, said they were the finest set of men that 
were ever got together on this continent. An account of Henry County from 1776, Notes and 
Queries, and several genealogical entries and accounts of families, likewise the Title and Index, 
close the Part

situate he devised to John Webb and Robert Hugh for the benefit of his said 
children till they should attain the age of 23. Then he gave the whole of his 
estate except as above mentioned to his four daughters as tenants in common. And 
whereas all four daughters have attained the age of 23 years, and whereas Elizabeth 
Savage is entitled to £1500 in the 4 per cent, annuities and £3000 in the 3 per 
cent, annuities, and also £200 in securities, and a Marriage is intended to be 
solemnized between the said Walter Landor and Elizabeth Savage, and whereas

[This and the previous Deed have this Seal attached to them.] 

With the exception of the few in the possession of Mr.' Richard Savage, all the 
above deeds and papers are from the muniment cupboard at Savage's House in 
Tachbrooke, now the property of Miss C. Landor of Cannington Grange ; there are 
many more similar deeds, but these extracts are printed for evidence that the 
Savages were a yeoman family indigenous at and about Tachbrooke from such early 
times as to argue that they were a family to themselves with no connection with the 
Savages of Rock-Savage and Elmeley Castle. These deeds do not prove the steps of 
a pedigree earlier than Queen Elizabeth's time, but they do shew the continued 
existence of a family dealing with the same fields from the time of King Edward IV. 
After all its vicissitudes in the Savage family the estate in Tachbrooke was sold 
by Walter Savage Landor in 1809 to the Earl of Warwick, but the house remained 
in the family. The arms engraved on page 1, Vol. V., are : (1) Landor, (2) Taylor, 
(3) Constantine, (4) Unknown,

Richard Aldworthb of Tilehurst, co. Berks, clothmaker. He probably came from 
Wantage, where there were many families of the name. (The entries in the Wantage 
Registers, 1540 — 1700, referring to peraons of the name of Aldworth, number 422.) 
His son Thomas in his will mentions his cousin John Aldworth, tanner, of Wantage. 
Richard Aldworthe married Elizabeth (surname probably Gerying), who survived 
him, and whose will bears date 4 March, 4 Edward VI. He was buried in " the 
pyshe churche of Tylhurst in the mydle ylee before the rood," which shews that he 
was a person of importance. His will is dated 8 November 1548. He had issue : — 

I. Thomas of Reading, clothier, a burgess of Reading from 1541 till his death. 
He was four times Mayor of Reading, in 1551, when he received King 
Edward VI, in great state (for the expenses incurred on this occasion see the 
Reading Records), in 1557, in 1561, and in 1572. He was elected M.P. for 
Reading in 1557. He died in 1576, and was buried in the Church of St. Law- 
rence. By his wife Alice (? Symonde), who survived him (will dated 25 Nov. 
1585), he had issue : — 

I. Thomas, mentioned in his grandmother's will 1550 (? bapt. 1538). 
II. Robert, who inherited a house at Tilehurst. 

III. Symondb or Symon, Constable of Reading. (See Star Chamber Proceed- 

ings, temp. Elizabeth, Addenda, Bundle 1, No. 4, "concerning the arrest 
of Simon Aldworth, Constable, while guarding royal treasure.") 

IV. Henry, a surety in some Reading municipal money transactions in 1589. 

Buried in the Church of Arbourfield, near Reading (will dated 29 July 
1696). By his wife Katherin he had issue : — 

Thomas, and six other children (names not mentioned). Thomas inherited 
a house in Reading. 

V. Joan DuNsooMBfE. 
VI. Alice Pyle, executrix of her mother's will. 

* Eaten by mice. j* Gommaaicated byC. J. Aubebtik, Bsq. 


II. William, of Salhampetead Abbot, near Beading. Inherited a house in Tile- 

hurst after bis mother's decease. He died in 1552. By his wife Elizabeth 

he had issue two sons : — 
I. Baetholombw. 
II. Half, godson to his grandfather. 

III. RiCHAKD, clothier, who inherited lands in " Sollomsted and SheflTeld." 

Burgess of Reading from 1566 till his death. He was thrice Mayor of 

Reading, in 1577, 1585, and 1594. He died in his Mayoralty 12 July 15d4. 

The churchwardens of St. Mary's paid vjs. and viijc?. for his grave and the 

tolling of the great bell. He left money towards building the new steeple of 

St. Mary's and for " paving the waye and alley that leadeth from St. Lawrence 

Chnrch to the Eldehall stayres with pible." His portrait is now in the 

Council Chamber at Reading. By his wife Julian or Gelian, who predeceased 

him (bur. 18 January 1593), he had issue : — 

I. Richard, baptized 13 April 1539. Elected a burgess of Reading in 1573, 

and fined iiij d, " quia venit tarde." He was buried 12 July 1584. On 

28 January 1571-2 he married Jane, daughter of Clement South, by 

whom he had (with two daughters, Alice, born 1578, and Ursula, born 

1580) an only son, 

Richard, baptized 10 June 1576, one of the Company of Skinners, to whom 
he left a piece of plate. He is styled in his will (dated 21 December 
1646, with several codicils, the last of which bears date 2 January 
1648-9) as of St. Mary Maudlin, Milk Street. He appears to have 
been extremely wealthy. He left £4000 to Reading and £2000 
to Basingstoke to found a Blue Coat School in either town, after 
the model of Christ's Hospital, with a " godly and learned school- 
master, to teach them to read, write, and cipher, and the Eatechisme," 
the children to have " convenient bedsteades, all of them to be fitted 
with decent and convenient bedds, boulsters, sheets, blanketts, 
coverlettes and all other furniture." They are to be ** dyetted " as 
are the children in Christ's Hospital, London, and are to have 
''shoes, hoasen, linnen and woollen — their upper garment to be a 
blue coate with a blue cap." He left also a house in Reading, 
adjoining the Churchyard of '^ Maries," to provide £20 per annum 
for an " orthodox devine, to preach a lecture every week and visit 
the sick when called upon." There were also charities to provide 
thirty cloth gowns yearly, and thirty loaves every Sabbath day, as 
well as numerous bequests, ranging from £1000 to £5, to kinsmen 
and retainers. He bequeathed the remainder of his fortune (together 
with land at Woollaston, co. Northampton, and at Westham, co. 
Essex) to the governors of Christ's Hospital, " upon condition that 
they provide a convenient place for the children to be educated in 
writing, cyphering, katechising, and the understanding of the Latin 
Tongue." The Skinners' Company were to have five nominations. 
He left money and mourning to the family of his cousin Richard 
Aldworth of London, deceased (of whom later), and also to his 
" kinsman " or cousin Richard Aldworth of Wargrave and Hinton 
Pipard, whom he also releases from a mortgage of £2000. He also 
mentions various members of Richard of Wargrave's family (of whom 
later, as the direct ancestors of Lord Braybrooke). The testator's 
will was not proved till 1654, as there seems to have been some 
dispute raised by the Puritans as to the form of Catechism intended 
to be taught. He apparently married a lady of the name of Charke, 
and had one daughter, who seems to have predeceased him, married 
to Richard Shaxton. 



[Note. — ^The number of Richard Aldworths alive at this time makes it some- 
what diflScnIt to place them. This Richard was almost certainly the son of Richard 
Aldworth, junior, as has been shewn, for (1) he says he was born in Reading, 
(2) his executor was Thomas South, and he mentions other members of the South 
family, whom he calls his kinsmen (his father married Jane South, as above). At 
any rate it was this Richard who founded the Bluecoat School, and not Richard of 
Ruscombe, ancestor of Lord Braybrooke, to whom this action is ascribed in a 
published pedigree,* which I have been able to correct and amplify, as well as 
verify in many particulare. For Richard of Ruscombe, whom we know from the 
Royalist Composition Papers to have been much impoverished, is mentioned by 
name (and called kinsman and cousin) in the will of the Richard at present under 

II. OiLBEBT (second son of Richard Aldworth, Mayor), baptized 16 June 1545 ; 

elected a burgess of Reading in 1580. Married 21 June 1573 Mary 
Fittes, and died 1587, having had by her : — 

1. John, bom 1676. 

2. Gilbert, born 1580 ; Surveyor of Highways at Reading 1606. 
8. Maby, bom 1574. 

4. Elizabeth, born 1588. 

III. John, baptized 10 September 1547, his father's executor ; inherited lands 

in Burfield and Sulhampstead ; married 8 May 1585 Phoebe Fittes. 
lY. Peter, baptized 1 April 1549. By his wife Alice he left at his death, which 
occurred in 1580, a son, 

Riohabd, who almost certainly 'is " my cousin, Richard Aldworth of 
London," mentioned as already deceased in the will of Richard 
Aldworth, founder of the Bluecoat School.f He was of St. Augas- 
tine's, Paul's Gate, and was a Merchant Taylor. He married 
Margaret (? Ooulson), and in his will dated 1624 (but proved 1638) 
he states that he was born in Reading, and mentions his children : — 

(1) RiCHABD, not yet of age in 1624. 

(2) SUBAN. 

(3) Elizabeth. 

(4) Margaret. 

(5) Frances. 

V. Catharine, married 1579 to Barnabie Hatch. 

VI. Anne, married 1579 to Peter Hardye. 
VII. Elizabeth, married to John Austill. 
VIII. Alice, married to James Matthewes. 

IX. Agnes (youngest daughter), born 1560 ; married 1588 to Francis Feild 
of London, Merchant Taylor. 

lY. John, the youngest son of Richard Aldworthe of Tilehurst (will 1543). He was 
a burgess of Reading from 1555-59, when his name drops out of tne list, but 
he and his wife were both living in 1594, as they are mentioned in the will of 
his brother Richard Aldworth, the Mayor. It is from this John that the 
Braybrooke Aldworths must have sprung. We know that they were descended 
from a John Aldworth, from the memorial in Wargrave Church erected by 
Richard Aldworth of Hinton Pipard (who died 1638-9) to the memory of 

* *' Miscellanea Qenealogica et Heraldica/' New Series, Vol. IV., p. 173. 
f Quotation in proof : *' To Mistris Aldworth, widow, wife of my cousin Richard A. of 
London, deceased, £6 for mourning, and to every of her daughtert £6." 


Richard Aldworth his father (died 1628), and to John and Alice, "ante- 
cessores snos,*' which must in this case mean grandparents. The published 
pedigree mentioned above starts boldly with "John Aldworth of West 
Hagbourne, Lord of the Manor of Garford in 1546, of Wantage in 1597, and 
latterly of Reading, Merchant " ; and not content with this long life and list 
of honours, the author of the pedigree marries him three times to other men*s 
wives. J have been at some trouble to prove the incorrectness of this state- 
. ment, viz. : — 

(1) There was a John Aldworth of West Hagbourne married to an Alice. 
He was a well-to-do yeoman and died in 1545. He had no son of the name 
of Richard. 

(2) In 38 Henry VIII., ».«., in 1545 or 1546, Richard Aldworth purchased 
the Manor of Garford from the King for £251 Ss. 4d. It had formerly 
belonged to Abingdon Monastery. He left at his death in 1557 a son John, 
who had a son Richard, but no connection with Reading. 

(8) There were a great number of persons named John Aldworth alive in 
Wantage in 1597, but whether one of them was Lord of the Manor I do not 
know, though one branch of the family is sometimes honoured with the prefix 
" Mr." in the registers. 

It is obvious then, that our genealogist has selected three John Aldworths and 
amalgamated them, in order to give a good start to his pedigree. All we can say 
for certain is that John Aldworth was a burgess of Reading from 1555 to 1559 ; 
that he was married before 1557, for in that year he pays pew-rent " iiij d, for his 
wyfe's sete " ; that he and his wife were living in 1594, and that he may have lived 
till 1602, when a person of his name appears in the Churchwardens' Accounts of 
St. Mary's, Reading, in a list which is entitled '* Three and Thertithe of the 
chefestes and auncientest men in the parish." If this John Aldworth is not the 
ancestor of the Braybrookes, I cannot see how we can explain the various allusions 
to kin and cousinship in the will of Richard Aldworth, who founded the Bluecoat 
School in 1646. 

I cannot find any date for the death or will of this John Aldworth. We know 
from his monument that his wife was named Alice, and that his son was the Richard 
Aldworth described below, who in his will gives us the names of his sisters. The 
children born to John and Alice Aldworth therefore were : — 

I. Richard, baptized at St. Mary's, Reading, 12 January 1557 ('* Visitation of 

Berks, 1665," says died 1628, aged 66). 
II. Ellen, ? baptized 26 January 1561 ; married .... Rippen. 
III. Alice, married John Wiseman ; a widow in 1628. 
rv. JoAK, ? baptized 8 April 1558 ; married .... Barber. 
V. Margaret, married .... Head ; a widow in 1628. 

RiOHARD, the only son, is styled in the published pedigree as of St. Mary Magdalen, 
Milk Street, an obvious confusion with his kinsman Richard of Bluecoat 
School fame. In his will (dated 14 April 1623) he calls himself " of London, 
citizen and Grocer." He mentions his house in St. Mary, Aldermanbury, his 
house at Stanlake, his dwelling in Reading, the moiety of his parsonage of 
Wargrave, his manor of Hinton Pipard, and his lands in Hinton Pipard, 
Stanlake, Twiford, Ruscombe, Sonning, and Hurst. He mentions also some 
barns called Morabury Barnes, which he purchased of Sir Henry Nevill, the 
elder, and Sir Henry Nevill, the younger, knights — interesting because the 
purchaser's descendants were to assume the name and represent the family of 
the vendors. He married firstly, Anne, daughter of Richard May of London, 
by whom he had (with two daughters, Anne and Alice) an only son, 
Richard, his heir. 


He married secondly, Margaret, daughter of Thomas Deane, clothier, of 
Beading, by whom he had : — 

I. Thomas, i ,. , , ^ ..,.,, 

WiLiiAM I before 1623, s.p., as is obvious from their father s will. 

III. Maegarbt, who married 4 September 1623 at St. James's, Clerkenwell, 
George (afterwards Sir George) Wilmot of Letcombe and Charlton near 
Wantage, and had issue. 
Richard Aldworth died 13 May 1623, and was buried at St. Mary's, Alderman- 
bury. He was succeeded by his eldest son, 

RiCHABD, described in the " Visitation of Berks " as of Wargrave. He married 
1614 Amy, daughter of Thomas Parsons of Great Milton (who survived him 
and died in 1672). He died in 1639 and was buried at Ruscombe. His 
children were : — 

I. Richard, born in Reading 1614, his heir. 
II. Thomas. 

III. Robert, who died at Milford on his passage to Ireland in 1652. His goods 

were administered by his mother. 

IV. Henry, an India merchant. His will was proved 12 August 1664. 
V. Anne, died unmarried at Chievely 14 March 1644. 

(All the above were born before 1623.) 
VI. John. 

VII. George, » ^ 

viii WiTLiAM I °iGQfcioned in will of their brother Henry 1664. 

Richard, the eldest son, is stated in the published pedigree to have founded the 
Bluecoat School, whereas he is mentioned in the will of the real founder as 
** my cousin, Richard A. of Wargrave, gent. — Mistris Amie A., mother of the 
said Richard — Five of the bretheren of the said Richard, videlicet, Robert, 
Henry," etc., as above. He is styled in the Visitation as of Ruscombe. 
In 1646 he was fined £200 for commanding a troop of horse in the King's 
service, and describes himself as seised of the Manor of Hinton Pipard^ called 
Stanlakes Farm, which he values at £160 yearly, and pleads poverty. To no 
purpose, however, for on 4 June 1650 the fine was paid. He was afterwards 
M.P. for Reading and Auditor of the Exchequer, and died 5 October 1680. 
He married Anne, daughter of William Gwyn of New Windsor, and had 
issue : — 

I. Richard, his heir. 

II. William of Frogmore. By his wife Anne, who died 1695, he had issue 
(will proved 23 December 1700) : — 

1. Charles of Frogmore ; M.P. for Windsor 1710 ; killed in a duel with 

Colonel Chudleigh, the outcome of a Jacobite dispute, 21 August 

2. Susan. 

3. Elizabeth. 

III. Charles, Vice-President of Magdalen College, Oxford ; expelled by 

James XL, but afterwards reinstated ; died unmarried 15 April 1720 
(vide Bloxam's " Register of Magdalen "). 

IV. John, B.A. of All Souls 1672 ; Rector of Lockinge, near Wantage, 1684 

until his death (unmaiTied) in 1729. He left a curious account book, still 
extant. It was his custom to have his wine brought up the Thames to 
Goring, and then carted to Lockinge, thus apparently avoiding duty. 
y. Henrt, buried in Ruscombe.

brancer in Ireland. He married Mary, daughter of William Orofton, M.P., 
and had issue : — 

I. John of Stanlake, born 1680 ; matriculated at Christ Chnrch, Oxford^ 1696 ; 
married Mary, daughter of James Tyrrel of Shotover, who died 1760, 
aged 90. He died s.p. 1710, and was buried at Ruscombe.

Richard Neville of Billingbere, and on his death in 1738 was succeeded by 
his only son, 

Richard, born 1717, who on the death of his uncle, Henry Neville of 
Billingbere, became the representative of that family, and assumed the 
name of Neville-Aldworth, and later of Aldworth-Neville. He was an 
M.P. from 1747-74; Under-Secretary of State and Minister at Paris. 
He married 1748 Magdalen, daughter of Francis Calandrini. She died 
1750. On his own death in 1793 he was succeeded by hk only son,

special remainder, to the title of his third-cousin, John Griffin- 
Whitwell, Lord Howard de Walden and Baron Braybrooke. He 
married Catherine, daughter of George Granville, and sister of the 
Marquis of Buckingham. He died 1825 ; the grandfather of the

Dear Sib, 

The "Salford Priors *' Pedigree on page 242 of " Mis. Gen. et Her.," Vol. IV., 
Third Series, is very defective except in the Osbaston line, so is also the ^^ Birming- 
ham " Pedigree. I enclose these two Pedigrees complete in the hope they may be 
of some use. The Pedigrees of Cope of Bramshill, etc., with the exception of the 
exact dates being omitted, which are easily obtainable, contain otherwise only one 
or two nnimportant errors. 

Tears obediently,

ANTHONY WARTON, 1681—1661. 

I shall be obliged by any clue to his ancestors in Lancashire, where he was born at Walton 
in 1581 ; educated at Lincoln College, Oxford, 1596 ; ordained by the Bishop of London 1607 ; 
Curate of Hamsey, Sussex, and in 1626 to 1661 of Brearaore, Hants. His will, in P.C.C. 1661, 
gives no clue to his wife or habitation before the date 1626. His grandson Anthony (1650 — 
1715) of Godalraing, etc., was a direct ancestor of Commander Joseph Warton, R.N., 1780 — 
1863, whose will and burial I fail to find. 

MS. at Lincoln College gives Anthony Wharton 1 596, bom 1683 ; from Lanes. 

MS. at Winchester — Anthony Warton, licensed to serve the curacy of Breamore, 1626. 

MS. at Doctors' Commons, 1607 — Anthony Warton, B.A. of Lincoln College, Oxford, 
ordained 1607, to be Curate of Hamsey, Sussex ; bom at Walton, co. Lancaster, 1581. 

The registers begin 1586, but give an Anthony, son of Thomas Wharton, baptized 1623. 
There are no clues at Hamsey or Lewes. 

Anthony's sermons were printed in London 1657. A. O.^H. 


Fenland Notes and Queries, Vol. V., Part 64. July 1902. Peterboroagh : George C. Caster^ 

Market Place. 
This Part gives more particulars of the *' Drainage of the Great Level *' two hundred years ago, 
the Commissioners asking for power to tax the country for new works, " to cut off comers and 
to make crooked rivers straight." Those acquainted with Ely and its neighbourhood at present 
can appreciate the labour undertaken then, and at a cost of only £1200, to which the country 
contributed. To shew the schemes undertaken, the River Ouse passed in 1618 to Littleport in 
a crooked course of ten miles long by water, whereas by land it is only three miles. About 
£1000 was spent on it, but it was not approved of by the better Eort of people, and they found 
means to stay it. It is rather humoursome to find how civic magnates in 1660, and later, very 
much approachetl those of the twentieth century by lavish expenditure on their dinners. At 
one meal for twelve Commissioners there were drank seven quarts of wine, aud for seventeen 
Commissioners there were five quarts of claret and two quarts of sack, besides sugar in large 
quantities, so that it was calculated that £100,000 a year was spent on sugar at christenings, at 
a cost of about £6 each. In 1621 this great waste of money was restricted by Proclamation of 
the State. 

There is given in another Paper an account of the marriages during the Commonwealth, 
written on loose leaves, now much worn and defaced. The service was before a Justice, and the 
marriage had to be proclaimed on three several Lord's days ; and a short Paper is given of 
Boston Fair so early as 1282, lasting a month, the citizens resorting to it in great numbers, and 
all business elsewhere ceasing. 

The Journal of the Bob Lihris Soeiety. Vol. XII., Parts 6, 7, and 8, June to August 1902. 

London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 
The June Part has some interesting plates, among them being the Plates of New CollegCi 
Oxford, 1702, also those of Sir Horace Mann, Bart., and Lord Walpole. 

The July Part for introductory plate has a large one of Mr. Bruce Bannerman*s, besides two 
smaller ones, and other coats are given, all designed by Mr. Graham Johnston, who has the 
great advantage of being the Herald Painter to the Lyon Office, the arms of Bir James Balfour 
Paul being given ; the plate of Mr. Nevile Beid is also shewn, as well as that of Robert Harley 
of Bramton Castle, Esq., Speaker and Chancellor of the Exchequer and Lord High Treasurer 
in Queen Anne's time, and that of his brother, Edward Harley, Esq., both with graceful 
mantling ; and the plate of their father-in-law, Thomas Foley, of Great Witley Court, is also 
shewn. This is altogether a good Number. 

The August Part is chiefly concerned with the President's speech at the Dinner and Annual 
Meeting, an ample report of which nominally occupies the major part of the Number. Mr. 
Jewers baa an account of the Borlase family, giving three different coats, and Mr. B. Maclay 
Bull of Brooklyn also has his plate shewn. The plates for identification are now 612. 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, No. 1, Vol. X. July 1902. Virginia 

Historical Society, Richmond, n.6.A. 
This is an interesting Part, and besides giving the John Brown letters, which are those of a 
religious fanatio, haS a good account of the Battle of Point Pleasant in November 1774 with 
various tribes of Indians, who heavily outnumbered the troops, under General Lewis, and soon 
shot three of his best officers while leading on their men, the fighting continuing all day. So 
eager were the Indians for scalps that three were shot over Captain John Frogge's body while 
endeavouring to scalp him. Lord Dunmore came with reinforcements and finally effected a 
treaty with the Indians. The genealogy in the Part is well sustained.

The present fabric of St. Giles' Church was erected in 1783, from the design of 
Henry Flitcroft, on the site of a church began in 1624 and finished in 1628. 
This replaced a much older building. 

In giving the Inscriptions in this Church we are fortunate in having two 
separate records of monuments which have now disappeared, for it will be seen that 
only fragmentary portions of two monuments that were in the Church erected in 
1624 remain, and a tablet of the Bertie benefaction, of which parts are gone. 
These records, which shew what a number of interesting monuments have perished, 
are, first, a collection of Church Notes, forming Lansdowne MS. 878, in the British 
Museum. The copies of inscriptions in this MS. (the title-page of which bears the 
name of William Faldoe) bear evidence of having been carefully made, and the arms 
are for the most part nicely tricked and coloured, although some towards the end 
are left unfinished, and in the margin a short note is given setting forth the 
character and position of many of the monuments. This MS. is undated, but 
appears to have been written about 1675 from the dates of the inscriptions. Our 
second source of information is Hatton's " A New View of London." This work 
corrects what Stowe gives in some points ; but on being compared with the MS. 
aod what remains of the actual inscriptions, will be found to vary in many small 
points, chiefly in the spelling of words and in extending abbreviations. The British 
Museum copy belonged to B. Grenville, having his name in it, and many pen and 
ink alterations and notes. 

At the West end of the North Aisle an oval marble tablet bears the following : — 
Deo Votiva | The Honor^e Robert | Bertie of this Parish, one of | the Son* of 
the Right Hon^^i^ | Robert, Earlb of Lindsey, Lord | Great Chamberlaine of 
England | and Generall of all y« forces of King | Charles the First, who was Slayne 
in I the Battalle att Edge Hill | hath given | into v« hands of y'' Churchwardens^ 
Fifty I pounds, that soe y^ Interest thereof may bee f distributed by them from time 
to time and | for ever, to the poore in bread | (Viz*) | Twelve peny worth, on every 
Sunday in y« | Yeare, & on every New Years day. Five | shillings (if Sunday) other- 
wise. Four I shillings ; & on y« last Sunday of Aug* | in ye same yeare. Five 
shillings, | Begun the First day of | January 1677. | Pauperibusqz | Tabula. 

[In the " New View " this is given with many variations of spelling, etc., but it 
adds the arms, now gone, namely : Three battering rams, impaling a bear rampant. 
No colours.] 

Beneath the first window from the West end of this Aisle is a plain marble 
tablet, inscribed with the following, and on a ledge beneath it is the recumbent 
effigy in marble of a lady. The style of the figure might be of a much later date, 
the form is so well moulded, and shrouded in a robe, the lines of which flow gracefully 
over the body :— In Memory of the Right Hon"« Lady Frances Knivbton, (wife of 

* Oommanicated by Arthur F. Q. Leveson Gower, Esq., assisted by Arthur J. Jewers. 


S' Gilbert Knivbton | of Bradley, in the County of Derby, Baronet,) lyeth buried 
in the Chancel of this Chnrch. | She was one of the 5 Daughters and Coheirs of the 
R^ Hon^*« 8' Robert Dudley, K*, Duke of the | Empire ; by the Lady Alice his 
Wife & Duchess, Which Robert was Son of the R* Hon^c | Robert Dudley, 
Late Earle of Leicester, & his Duchess was Daaghter of S' Tho. Leigh | & Aunt 
to the R* Hon"° Tho« late Lord Leigh of Stoneleigh in the County of Warwick, j 
And the said Honour and Title of Duchess Dudley was by Letters Patents of his 
late Majesty | of glorious Memory, King Charles y^ 1"^ allowed ; & since 
graciously confirmed to hor by his | now Majesty King Charles y" 2* and she 
lived and died worthy of that Honour | Since the rebuilding of this Church, this 
monument was resett up by the | Hon^*^ Charles Leigh of Leighton in Bedford- 
shire; 1788. 

[The above is the monument as it now appears, with a careful copy of the 
inscription, which will be found to vary in minor points from that printed in '^ A 
New View of London," which, however, supplies the following inscription, now 
gone, with the marble on which it was cut: — 

"The Right Honourable Lady Frances Knivbton, Wife of Sir Gilbert 
Knivbton of Bradley in the County of Derby, Baronet, lyeth buried in the Chancel 
of this Church. She was one of the Daughters and Coheirs of the Right Honour- 
able Sir Robert Dudley, Knight, Duke of the Empire, by the Lady Alice his 
Wife and Duchess. Which Robert was son of the Right Honourable Robert 
Dudley, late Earl of Leicester, and his Duchess was Daughter of Sir Tho. Leigh 
and Aunt to the Right Honourable Tho., late Lord Leigh of Stoneley in the 
County of Warwick. And the said Honour and Title of Duchess Dudley was by 
Letters Patents of his 1* Majesty of Glorious Memory King Charles the 1"* 
allowed and since gi'aciously confirmed to her by his now Majesty King Charles 
the 2^ ; and she lived and died worthy of that Honour. 

" The Right Honourable Lady Anne Holbourne, sister of the said Lady 
Frances, another Daughter of the said Duke and Duchess, did will this Monument, 
which she has provided in her life time, to be erected to the Memory of her dear 
Sister near to whom herself (who died August 1663) lyes also interred ; and it is 
placed here for want of convenient room in the Chancel.*' 

The " New View " also gives the following description of the monument and the 
arms then on it : — 

" On the South Side of the Church and at the West End is an Extraordinary 
Spacious Monument mostly marble, adorned with Cartouches, Cornish, Pediment, 
Martling, Festoons ; on the Pediment is a Death's Head, having a Laurel Chaplet, 
and under, the word ' Resurgamus ' between two Boys supporting a large mantling, 
supposed to let down and cover the whole Monument ; as also Effigies lying at full 
length, finely carved. 

" Here are these arms : Ruby, a Chevron Verry, on a Canton Pearl a Sinister 
hand of the first impaled tvith Topaz, a Lion rampant Diamond which last is also 
impaled with Pearl on a Fees diamond, 3 Cresents Topaz in Chief 2 Birds rising 

The above method of blazon having entirely fallen into disuse as purposeless 
and confusing, it may be as well to give the modern form. First Shield : Oules, 
a chevron vaire (the badge of a Baronet in chief), Knivbton ; impaling Or, a lion 
rampant double-queued vert, Dudley. This well-know u coat is incorrectly given 
in the " New View,** but correctly given in Lansdowne MS. 878. Second Shield : 
Argent, o?i a fess sable three crescents or, in chief two birds rising of the second, 
HoLBORN ; impaling Dudley, as l)efore. Also two Shields of Kniveton impaling 
Dudley, both quarterly ; and Dudley with quarters and impaling Blake 
(see post), 

A ** Life of Sir Robei't Dudley, with notes on the Lives of Alice, Duchess Dudley, 
and her daughters,*' states that the present figure in St. Giles' Church was originally 
part of a very magnificent monument, the figui'e being under a carved canopy, 


supported by black marble pillars, which monament is generally supposed to have 
been erected by Alice, Duchess Dudley, as it closely resembles the monument she 
erected for herself in Stoneleigh Church ; but this supposition is eflTectually disposed 
of by the statement regarding the monument in the will of Dame Anne Holborne, 
of wnich the following is an abstract : — 

Anne Holborne makes her will in perfect health and memory. Undated. To 
be buried in the chancel of St. Giles' Ohurch in the fields, as near the body of her 
sister Lady Frances Kniveton as can be. To the poor of that parish £50 to be 
distributed at her burial. For the repair and re-edifying of the church adjoyning 
to the Temple House in Bulsall lane £500, and if that is not sufficient so much 
more as will build it up in fair and decent manner ; also to that church or chapel 
£100 a year for ever, out of lands in Bulsall to maintain a preaching minister to 
the end of the world. Out of lands in Long Itchington £50 a year to be settled 
upon the ohurch to augment its small income. To the poor of the Parishes of 
Bulsall and Long Itchington, co. Warwick, £100, to be distributed about the 
time of her funeral. £200 for a ring and Jewell for her mother the ^'Lady 
Duchess Dudley." Cousin Skrimsher, the Lord Viscount Bronker's sister, *'my 
husband's picture set with diamonds," and to her daughter Frances Skrimsher 
£100 if she live to be twenty years of age. £50 for a ring for cousin Elizabeth 
Trasie. Cousin Charles Leigh £100 or a ring of that price. To true and faithful 
friends Thomas Percival, Esq., £100, and his wife M" Katherine Percival £500 ; 
to their daughter " ray goddaughter " £500. Cousin Elizabeth Stanley £20. 
Worthy friend and kinsman Lord Viscount Bronkre £1500 or £100 a year out of 
lands in Itchington for his care of her and her affairs, and had intendea him to be 
her executor, but for many reasons thinks it not convenient, and therefore ordains 
her worthy brother Sir Richard Leveson, Knight of the Bath, and dear sister Lady 
Katherine Leveson his wife to be executors, and the said Lady Katherine Leveson 
to be residuary legatee, and a ring of £100 to said brother Leveson, and they to 
see "my deare sister the Lady Frances Leveson's tomb set up in S* Gyles church as 
I have agreed with one M' Marehall, a stone cutter in Shoe lane, and is to pay him 
£120 for it, and to be set up under the South window near which her said sister 
Lady Frances Kniveton is buried." ** I desire my owne figure to be added to hers 
in a winding shecte as my deare sisters is." Goddaughter Anna Howin £20 when 
she is twenty, and, being much beholden to her parents, gives a ring of £20 to 
cousin Howin and one of £10 to his wife. ** My cozen Andoreus his daughter." 
Bequests to servants. If brother and sister Leveson are not near at her death and 
the Lord Viscount Brounker is, that he will act as Executor. 

Proved 27 Aug. 1663 by William Viscount Brouncker as the will of Lady Anna 
Holborne, late of the parish of St. Paul, Covent Garden, Sir Richard Leveson, K.B., 
being deceased, and Dame Katherine Leveson, his relict and sister of the deceased, 
renouncing. (P.C.C., 108, Juxon.) 

The following is an exact copy of the inscription as given in Lansdowne 
MS. 878 :—

There has lately come into my possession ^* A Register or A Oenerall Almanack 
for Every Yeare," printed at London " by William Wilson for the Company of 
Stationers, 1646," which in itself is a curiosity, with its chapters on Weather, 
Temperaments, the Planets, Weights and Measures, the Fairs, fixed and moveable, 
of England and Wales, the Road Highways over England and Wales, and much 
more information as various as remarkable. Its chief interest, however, lies not 
only in the fact that it was a notebook of a Scotch physician, apparently a Doctor 
Stirling, and contains his prescriptions (which are of a weird character, as were the 
medicines with which unfortunate patients were mercilessly dosed in those days), 
his patients* names, and the names of some doctors whose special prescriptions he has 
copied, but also in that there is scattered through its pages the names and obituaries 
of several persons, probably his patients, mixed with sundry other matters relating 
to his personal affairs. 

It IS the genealogical items, however, that are alone suited for the pages of this 
Magazine, and these I have abstracted and give as below. 

The writing is clear and neat on the whole, but it is so small in places that it 
required a magnifying glass to decipher. Some of it has faded and is partly illegible, 
but it is all methodical and without signs of haste. It is amazing the amount of 
matter that is squeezed into the small pages. 

Who Dr. Stirling was, or where he practised (if he were a Stirling) I cannot 
say, but I suspect he was an ancestor of the present Sir John Stirling-Maxwell, 
Bart., and some of your readers may be able to throw some light on his identi- 

The following are the entries recording births and deaths, with an occasional 
marriage, and some entries relating to property : —

Some Feudal Coat» of Arms, By J. FOSTXB, Hon. M.A. Ozon. London and Oxford : 

Jamefi Parker and Co. 

This is a new book, on a fresh departure, by Mr. Foster, and is well worthy of a place in every 
gentleinan*8 library. It is a volume complete in itself, and is nicely got up and issued by 
Messrs. Parker. With other works of Mr. Foster's, half a dozen wonld be begun in parts, where 
there was no chance of them being finished for years to come, such as his " Familiss Minorum 
Gentium,*' which has now been issued by the Harleian Society in four volumes, and " Musgrave's 
Obituary," making six volumes — both works quite out of the reach of private enterprise, and 
only possible where such a wealthy society such as the Harleian undertakes the printing and 
issuing for its members. Similarly placed were the Lincolnshire Pedigrees, began by Mr. Foster 
and relinquished. It has this year been undertaken by the Harleian Society, under the 
editorship of Canon Maddison, who is adding several pedigrees of his own compilation and that 
of friends to it ; and as it will make three or four volumes, that again was an error of judgment 
to think of issuing it in sheets with other works, iis years would be exhausted before the work 
was completed. 

This present work is rare, in giving so many page illustrations of knights from 1300 upwards. 
On every other page is a plate given either of arms or figures in full armour, about 130 in all out 
of a volume of about BOO pp. The smaller coats seem all to be carefully drawn, each with a 
name attached, and colours given. The facsimiles of the Boroughbridge Roll of 1322 and a 
tracing from the Camden Boll temp. Edward I. are both given as a double plate on a toned ground, 
such as we often adopt in this publication. Altogether the work is worthy of its painstaking 
compiler and publisher, and will prove a boon to many bookplate collectors in corroborating 
unknown coats. 


An Exact List of the Lm-dit Spirttual and T&mporal in 17S4. London : Elliot Stock , 

Paternoster Bow, B.C. 

This is a little book, nicely got up and bound, of the Members of the House of Ix>rds in 1734. 
It has a Preface by Mr. A^ C. Fox-Daries, who gives some interesting summaries of the number 
of Archbishops, Dukes, Marquesses, Earls, Viscounts, and Bishops. Each page is a photographed 
facsimile of a copy found bound up with G-oldsmith*s Almanack for 1735, which is now in the 
British Museum. We note that Lord Palmerston sat for Boffiney, Cornwall, and Sir Bowland 
Uill for Litchfield, and also that several Lords lived in Boho. Altogether it is worthy the 
acceptance or patronage of all members of Parliament. 

The Journal of the Ex Libris Society, Vol. XIL, Parts 9, 10, and 11, September to November 
1902. London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 

Thb above Parts tend to keep up the Journal to its usual level, and the September one gives 
some examples of an American draughtsman, which as his narrator, Mr. Truesdell, says, shew 
some originality in form and shape ; the one of Frank Wood's is a picture in itself, being ably 
minimized from the Outtenberg plate placed on a pile of books, the open leaf of the one at top 
shewing his arms. Another American artist, Mr. Arthnr P. Spear, has three plates given, also 
shewing great care and variety of style, Mr. Lothrop*B especially. The Part also contains a 
sample of a coat in three colours at one impression, the registering of which is perfect. The 
November Part gives the arms of Lord Craven and also two of the Jago family of Cornwall, and 
of the Borlase family. The arms for identification now amount to 621. 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, No. 2, Vol. X. October 1902. Virginia 
Historical Society, Blchmond, U.S.A. 

This Part has the article, " The Germans of the Valley," concluded. It has been very interest- 
ing, shewing as it has done the frugal manner and style of living in the early part of 1700. The 
Brown papers are also continued, giving an account of events after the scrimmage at Harper*s 
Ferry. In style John Brown and the Boer Eruger are much alike, each with a Bible in one hand 
and a death-warrant in the other. The Part also contains an account of Christ Church, Lancaster, 
CO. Virginia, with two illustrations. 

Fenland Notet and Queries, Vol. V., Part 56. October 1902. Peterborough : George C. Caster, 

Market Place. 

This Part contains the usual quantity of local matter, including the Drainage question of 1618, 
and a painstaking article on the liberty of Peterborough, giving an account of the various 
deeds parsed from time to time. Among other interesting matters given is an advertisement for 
" Letting the Poor," whereby persons who wished to treat for the same were desired to apply to 
the Churchwarden or Overseer. " None but married persons need apply." We presume their 
labour was utilized for any purpose the applicants required it for.

against the wall of the vestibule at the West end of the Church. 

The rest of this monument, probably originally within the Church, stood until 
about the year 1892 at the East end of the Church outside the Vestry wall. It 
became so ruinous and dangerous that it was taken down by order of the Vestry 
Authorities, who had applied in vain to the representatives of the family to urge 
its restoration, and, with the exception of the plain oblong marble panel above 
mentioned, was buried in the churchyard.] 

The inscription on this panel is as follows : —

The following is a description of the' Belasyse monument taken, with the 
illustration, from the " Gentleman's Magazine," 3 August 1817 : — 

'^ Passing in at the Monmouth-street gate of St. Giles's Church a few Sabbaths 
ago, some I saw were viewing FmdriVs tomb, and others the Belasyse monument 
at the East end of this handsome Church ; but neither the one or the other, I 
found, could easily be decyphered. Time is making rapid progress in the destruction 
of both these records of memorable events and noble families, and, unless jovl 
think them worth a place in your ever-living collection, it is feared their inscriptions 
may be lost for ever. 

*' I have endeavoured to decypher the Belasyse monument, and inclose it you. 
It was, however, the pleasant amusement of three Sabbath mornings' visits ; I hop 
the record will be of some amusement to all ; and if it meets the eye of any of the 
family there so highly spoken of, I hope they will take means to restore this not 
very antient monument to its original beauty."

placed when the corpse (which was enclosed in a leaden coffin) was renioTed with some others 
to a vault under the North gate. ('* Gentleman's Magazine.") 

f The following corrections are made in pen and ink : — ^ In the Year 1736. - It now is 
E. end of ch. outeide. ' Naseby spelt Knavesby on the mon^ * Nottingham. * "He" added. 
* " And. etc.*' more on the monument. ' In co. Herts. * " And Frances, deceased ;" and the 
sentence from " Bath " to *' Mary " struck out. * This paragraph is struck out and this added : 
" d'* 11 Aug. 1662." This paragraph is also struck out. 

I This can hardly be the same roonament ; if it is, it must have been conRiderably altered. 
The date, 1670, nineteen years before the death of Lord Bellasyse (p. 183, line 3), exactly corre- 
sponds with the date of the erection of the monument \b Worlaby Church (vide infra^ p. 186).

The Carmngs and Ingeriptmut an the Kirhyard Monuwcntst of the Scottish Lowlandn^ par- 
tioularly of Perth, Fife, Angut, Mfarm, and Lothian, By C. Chbistison, M.D. 
Edinburgh: NeiU and Co. 1902. (Only 100 printed.) 

This is a vepy neat, small qnarto work, amply illnstrated tbronghont with nearly 200 engravings, 
and welt printed. The monuments given, as at Kilmadock, Perthshire, are excellently copied, 
which shews how carefully they had been cleaned out before photographs of them were taken, 
and proving beyond a doubt that all were carved by one statuary, both from the similarity of the 
lettering as well as the words used, such as ^* Memento Mori," etc. Some stones shew a spade 
only upon the slab of stone, while others have a plough-share, and some give the date or initials 
only ; on one is a pair of scales, on another a bugle or a funnel— about 1618 to 1741. Taking 
Angus for example, there are slabs filled with writing in a smaller character entirely than those of 
1637, and initials and tools of all kinds, as if they had been masons' marks ; figures are some- 
times in relief, flowers also, one stone having four clothed figures in buttoned coats, and one 
with a coronet on his head, each having separate inscriptions,*' I do ring," << I shall ring," *' I did 
ring," and " I once rang," with excellently deciphered letters and the date, 1743. Adam and Eve 
are shewn on other stones, Moses striking the rock, and Aaron with breastplate and his rod, 
depicted as a round-headed knotty stick ; this was built into a cottage years after, and five other 
stones from Perth were also ready, but the builder, going from home for a few days, found on 
his return that the blacksmith had carried them off from the builder's cottage and had broken 
them up to moke a hearth for his smithy t The writing on the monuments at Angus and 
Meams, again, shews a great similitude, proving that ooe class of masons had done them all. A 
large stone at Laurencekirk, Meams, shews a coat with handsome mantling, and armoured shoulder- 
piece with helmet on top, and on a slab inside initials of a worthy cobbler and l)is tools, all 
depicted in relief underneath. In Fife are shewn Freemasons' signs, saws, initials, ships, etc., 
and on several is the hour-glass with the age given of the deceased as 80 and the date 1626. In 
West Lothian also are shewn the hour-glass, hammers, compasses, saws, Death*s head and croes- 
bones, rakes and spades, with *' Memento Mori " repeated as in Kilmadock and Angus. Lanark, 
Peebles, and Dumfries chiefly depict the figures of Adam and Eve in Paradise, with trees and 
serpents. The Perth figures are mostly given clothed as man and wife, and some shew only the 
bust of the man. Melrose has several busts of men, and on one slab is an excellently drawn 
head of a musician, for on the stone, enclosed in a shield, are the violin and bow. At Rosneath 
is shewn a cobbler's monument, with the motto, " This is for Crispin," and a high boot and shoe 
with a round-headed knife. 

We baye thus gone over the various styles given, and our wonder is that so many appear 
perfect., although 250 years old. The neighbourhood, too, was not subject to a Cromwell's inroads ; 
and even the mischief-makers further south, who cannot allow the nose on a beautiful alabaster 
moDumeut to remain, found that solid stone triumphantly withstood their dastard tricks. There 
were not even brass inscriptions or figures of knights to steal. 

The compiler, too, has been fortunate in having so many helpers to photograph the monuments ; 
but even in these cases, we know well what a vast amount of deaniug the filth of centuries 
entails, and the assistance he has had is proved by the scrupulous clearness of all the inscriptions, 
even where the writing is so small. 

The work shews in every way painstaking carefulness, great judgment in the classification of 
the monuments, and an earnest desire to shew by these records the history and condition of 
Scotland two centuries ago. What apparently is plain is the respect shewn by the present 
generation to such monuments, and the care taken by the clergy to preserve all they can. What 
a different state of things exists in the majority of the churches in England, where to form a 
passage between the pews the best and the oldest of the stone monuments are made a pavement 
of : some with small brasses still intact on them, others with the inscriptions and arms only, 
with all the mantling depicted, and perhaps after a search you find 1600 often inscribed on them. 

The value of this work would have been greatly enhanced by a good index. 


The Virginia JUagaxine of History and Biography, No. 8, Vol. X. Jannaiy 1903. Virginia 

Historical Society, Bichmond, U.S.A. 
This is an ample Part giving in one article the names of the owners of slayes in Westmoreland 
in 1782, and the Houses of Burgesses in 1683-4. There are also two plates, one shewing the 
birthplace of Mary Washington, and the other giving facsimile letters of Sir George Yeardley, 
Governor of Virginia in 1619, with a good account of him from the Ferrar Papers. " Pioneer 
days in Alleghany Ck)unty *' shews the hard times the settlers had with the Indians early in 1700, 
who after being well received would murder the whole, of the men, one now and then perhaps 
escaping, and rushing over the Alleghany mountains would warn the settlements and the nearest 
fort. So the Indians went from point to point until some spirited Captain went in pursuit, 
and perhaps having lost half his men in an ambush he came up with a body of them, and 
then would come across the scalps of the forme;r settlers. Among these was a woman called 
<*Mad Anne," a heroine named Anne Dennis from Liverpool, England, in 1742, she being 
an immigrant at 13, marrying at 23, and a widow at 32. By her husband she had a son, 
who his mother left in charge of a neighbour while she sought to avenge her husband's death. 
Nothing daunted .she dressed herself with petticoats and a man's coat over them, and with 
a rifle, a tomahawk, and a butcher's knife she became a courier. No mountain was too steep 
for her and her steed, no summer too hot, no enemy too cunning. She spent a year in a hut 
built by herself, and immortalised herself by a long ride from one fort to another, returning with 
powder for the besieged garrison. For this valiant act she was given a beautiful and spirited horse 
which she called " Liverpool.*' From the ridge which bears the name of " Mad Anne's Bidge " 
she started for ammunition and was overtaken in a snow-storm and fell asleep, bat the horse 
returning a party was at once despatched in search of her, and finally she was rescued from 
a hole in the snow, caused by her warm breath. At another time she aroused the garrison at 
Fort Young by her shouts, and came in bloodstained and haggard, but bearing two Indian 
scalps as her trophies. She married again a valiant frontiersman and lived up to 1825, her 
pulseless cjrpse being found in a rude shanty built by herself on the banks of the Ohio Biver. 
Her virtues still echo through the mountain passes where her footsteps are a century old. The 
above and other interesting papers fill a very good Part. 

The Smith Family ^ being a popular account of meet hranchee of the name from 1300, with 
numerous pedigrees. By Cohptok Bbadb, M.A. Magdalen College, Oxford, Bector of 
Eenchester, and Vicar of Bridge Sollars, Author of "A Becord of the Bedes," etc 
London : Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster Bow, E.C. 
This is a portly volume of 300 pp., and as the author says, *' it professes to review the great 
Fabrician family, whether crisped as Smith, ' smoothed into Smyth,' or ' smidged into Smijth.' " 
He therefore is not content to give merely a pedigree, but has endeavoured to add a precis of 
those who have attained celebrity. He makes a joke of how persons bom a Smith wriggle out 
of the name as if it were too common ; and as there is no reason why a butler cannot assume the 
name of his master, so a Bug will blossom into a Norfolk Howard, or plain John Smith become 
metamorphosed into a De Montmorency, as the Carringtons, Pauncefotes, etc. As for antiquity, 
the Smiths, like the poor, have always been with as, and the author says that Professor Mahaffy 
found a roan known as Smith in the twentieth year of the third Ptolemy, B.o. 227, and he was 
a brewer ! The author also pleasingly narrates how a mansion with an ancient rookery was 
purchased by a man named Smith, and the rooks, whose tenure of the Elizabethan elms was as 
ancient as the mansion, met in conclave and decided that it would be beneath their dignity to 
adorn the demesne of anyone with so plebian a patronymic. When about to emigrate one of 
their tribe arrived post haste to assure them that the name was Smythe and not Smith t Of 
course they then remained. Tbe late Mr. Carrington Smith, nursery gardener of Worcester, 
proved himself a real Carrington, and after that he breathed freely. 

. The author takes the Heralds' Visitations, beginning with Abingdon, Berks, and going on 
alphabetically, gives pedigrees in each county down to Yorkshire, and also avails himself of 
the Harleian Society's ** Faroilisa Minorum Gentium," and quotes three pedigrees from tlie work 
of Smith of Botherbam, Smith of Newark, and Smyth of Colkirk, Norfolk, whose daughter 
Caroline Smyth of 1678 married Thomas Bendyshe of Gray's Inn, and had a son Ireton B., and 
from this line possesses a descent from Oliver Cromwell. 



Some of the more ambitious Smyths claim a royal descent, such as the Slkington Smyths, 
who claim descent from Edward I. through Eleanor of Castile, and onward through Sir Robert 
Drnry, Speaker of the House of Commons, whose daughter married Sir Philip Boteler, and from 
that family into Sir Anthony Chester's, and then finally settled in 1660 into the Smyths family 
of Blkington Hall. 

The whole work is pleasant reading, interspersed as it is with amusing accounts from some 
of the- family histories. 

Ths Journal of the Bx Libru Society, Vol. XII., Part 12, for December 1902, and Parts 1 and 2, 
Vol. XIIL, for January and February 1903. London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 

Tbb December Part has three coats of arms of Sir Daniel Fleming, Bart., created by the King 
at Windsor in 1681. He was a notable man in his day, fond of heraldry ; was a great friend of 
Dugdale the genealogist, who complains of haring fallen "into an age wherein matters of 
antiquity are ralued but by few. I often wish myself with you for an hour or two, for I see you 
both love and understand these things rery well." On 11 June 1672 Dugdale informs Daniel 
that the King's Letters Patent have been issued asking subscriptions toward the new structure 
" of our College in London commonly called .the Heralds' Office." The Paper ends by giving 
a very good pedigree from Sir Daniel Fleming, bom 1633, to Sir Andrew Fleming Hudleston 
Fleming, 8th Bart in 1884.— Mr. C. Dexter Allen has an interesting letter on bookplates, and 
gires one of John Paul Bocock and another of " Willard Lee and his son Jack," a ranchman, in 
costume, standing beside his horse with lasso and revolver in hand. 

The January Part gives the arms of the Speaker, William Court Qully, besides four legal 
bookplates and two for identification, and the arms with a plate of Mr. E. H. Ebsworth. It 
also contains a list of Worcestershire Bookplates, and a rough list of legal ones. The Part 
includes Title of Vol. XII. and Contents, and a General Index. 

The February Part gives the arms of the Bristol Law Society, and besides that there are four 
legal bookplates and three pages of a rough list of them. The Editor's dissertation on bookplates 
to the members of the Plymouth Institution is noticed, illustrated as it was by a number of 
slides, and Dr. Peachey's lecture at Abbey Qateway, Beading, before the Berks Arch»ological 
Society, is given, ^ere are also shewn the plates for the Gosport and Alvestoke Reference 
Library and the Limehouse District Public Library. The bookplates for identification number 
now 536. 

Blake Family Beeordif 1300 to 1600 : A Chronological Catalogue, with copious Notes and 
" Oeneaiogies, of many branches of the Family of Blake. By Mabtik J. Blakb, of Lincoln's 
Inn. London : Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster Bow, E.G. 1902. 

Thb Blake Family of Connaught has been blessed with documents proving their right to grants 
of land from 1315, and in this work we find the appointments under which they received 
the titles, facsimiles of which are shewn, and from Record No. 1 to No. 173 the deeds of 
oonfirmation and mortgage, besides leases. There is an Addendum beginning 1393, after which 
come the Genealogical Memoirs of various branches of the Blakes of Galway, whose memoirs are 
given from 1278, to Peter Blake of Corbally, who died in 1851, leaving nine children and twenty- 
five grandchildren. The work ends with the genealogies of some branches of the Blakes of 
Galway and Blakes of Canada, who emigrated there in .1832, William Hume Blake becoming 
Solicitor-General of Upper Canada. 

The work is well got up, and makes upwards of 200 pages, and will be esteemed as a most 
painstaking record of a family well worth resuscitating. We, however, gr^tly miss an index. 

Fenland Notes and Queries. Vol. V., Part 56. January 1903. Peterborough : George C. Caster, 

Market Place. 

This Part begins with an account of the Wanty family of Thoqiey from Mr. Peet's *' Memorials 
of de Vantier," an old Huguenot immigrant supposed to have been driven from France in 1685. 
For five years after not a single baptism at Thorney is recorded. However, they settled in the 


neighbourhood, and were saccessfal in reclaiming the fens of Lincolnshire and adjacent oonnties 
daring the centnry they settled there, many of them marrying with their English neighbonrs. 
The names of these strangers abound in every village and hamlet in the district, but the 
recollection of the French language has long ceased to be heard in the Fens, and their names 
are almost beyond recognition through anglicization and corrupt pronunciation. However, the 
Wantiers between 1586 and 1628 were domiciled at Maidstone and Canterbury, their names 
appearing in the Registers at Canterbury, and by courtesy the crypt of the cathedral was 
devoted to them and their companions as a place of worship. It is recorded that they tried 
to establish themselves at Hatfield Chase in Yorkshire, making overtures to the Earl of 
Bedford to rent land on his Thorney estate, and drain and cultivate it' This account will be 
welcomed by the Huguenot Society of London, also the three arms given. 

Among other articles there is a reference to the Northampton Free Library disposing of the 
choice works comprised in the books that had belonged to the Northampton Poet, John Clare. 
Of course if a poet, like the prophet of old, is not esteemed by his own country his friends may 
disregard him, but when the collection of books given to him is acquired by his friends and 
presented to his native library as a record of his memory, it seems to us like a breach of trust 
for any committee to sell them, because the original donorp of the library had a prior claim to 
them before they were sold, if found valuable. It is a precedent which is just as well stopped 
at the lieginning, else it will ramify through every library in the kingdom. The Part is 
altogether interesting. 

T^ve Dightinii of Clifford Chatnbers and their Dnscendawtt. By CoNWAY DlGHTON. London : 
Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster Row, E.C. 

This is a family history, beginning with Job Bighton, Barrister-at-Law of the Middle Temple, 
who was settled at Clifford about 1689, and liought the manor and advowson in 1649 from the 
Raynsf ords, who were ruine 1 Royalists, for £4450. He died ten years later and was buried in the 
night by his brother-in-law Mr. William Harewell. 

Richard Dighton was his grandson, and bis youngest son was John, who bought an estate at 
Shirbum in 1754, and died intestate in 1761, leaving a widow and eight children. He was the 
senior partner of a firm of solicitors styled Dighton and Bonnin. His eldest eon, James Lucy, 
who was a minor at his father death, went to India with his three brothers after the disposal 
of his father's property. The youngest son, bora six months after his father's death, turned out 
to be a distinguished Indian officer, and became a Lieatenant-Gteneral, Hon. East India 
Company, in 1804. The two surviving sons, David Royd and Richard Henry, who with their 
father have their portraits given, carried on the Anglo-Indian tradition of their house ; David 
became First Lieutenant in 1824 and was killed in the Burmese War, and Richard Henry, who 
was a sickly boy, made a great name for himself in India, being in the banking house of William 
Palmer and Co., and became mixed up in the finances of Hyderabad, and was named as Com- 
missioner of the District, but the appointment was forbidden by Lord Uardinge. He, however, 
waschiefiy concerned in the care of the Nizam's fortune, and finally got away with all the jewels 
given to him as security, which were afterwards returned on the Nizam paying interest in 1854, 
the year Richard died in England. 

The eldest brother of Henry was Charles Mein Dighton, who was a short time in the army, 
but left it to enter Holy Orders. He was soon ordained deacon in the Cathedral of Llandaff, and 
with a full account of his ministration the writer takes leave of his readers. 

The work ends with nine Appendices, which embrace the births, deaths, and marriages of 
the different branches, and gives an interesting account of this worthy family well worth record- 
ing. It, however, loses greatly through the absence of an index. The four portraits and coats 
of arms are a pleasing feature to the book.

The name De Sera lingers in Brittany. Ser« in Celtic signifies Star«. In the 
South of France the name has been familiar since the thirteenth centnry (vide 
" Dictionnaire de la Noblesse," Desbois et Badier). 

Many persons named Sers, who left Languedoc apparently at the close of the 
seventeenth century, were settled in Dublin circa 1699 — 1713, as it appears from 
Registei's published by The Huguenot Society of London. Vol. xvi., " French 
Refugees," Heralds' College, mentions Pierre Sers and others in extracts, presum- 
ably taken from Registers of Foreign Protestant Churches, London, 1720, 1729, 

A transitional spelling of Sirr from Sera was Seer or Seers. This spelling 
appears to have been used in Germany, and it is known that Sirr was altered from 
a German spelling. " Patronymica Britannica " also connects the two spellings. 

Peter Sers, son of John, of St. Martin's, London, matriculated at Christ Church 
1720-21, and graduated as Patrick Seere (Alumni Oxonienses). 

In Prussia there were persons named Sers in the military service, mde " Deutche 
Biographic " and " Moniteur des Dates," from which it appears that the spelling 
was also Seers and Sehre (with or without De or Von), and that General Peter von 
Seers (spelt also Sehrs in ^^ Deutche Biographic,'* and with the alteVnative Sers in 
*' Moniteur des Dates," Tom. iii., Suppl.) left France for the sake of religion, and 
was probably located at Herford in Westphalia in 1695. 

Pass for Saranell Serse for Holland (possibly en route for Prussia) by Marq. de 
Miremont (Huguenot General in Ireland). (Cal. State Papers, Dom., 1690.) 

The will of Peter Sers of Gedney, Lincolnshire (P.C.C), proved in London 
28 March 1812. His sister was included in a grant of arms to Sir George Nayler, 
York Herald (afterwards Garter), whom she married in 1798. 

The arms used in this Lincolnshire family, which is of French origin, accord 
with the arms for Seers, Prussia^ given by Fiietstrap. The confirmation to Sirr is 
differenced — in chief a Harp of Ireland^ above it the Imperial Grown^ both proper, 
(Ulster's Office, Dublin.) The arms were thus differenced for a confirmation a 
centnry before the actual confirmation. The difference was allowed, but the crest 
also was differenced in the confirmation. 

A large family Bible, containing all entries relating to Sirr family, the old 
Baptismal Bowl, and many papers and effects were destroyed by fire at Whiteley's, 
where they were stored. Many baptisms were private and probably not elsewhere 

It is held that the name Sers is essentially Celtic, and this would imply that 
the family originated in Brittany, and that the branch which immigrated into 
Prussia did so only after having immigrated iqto England, where the name Sers was 
turned into the essentially English spelling Se^rs. 

Sera^ Canton de Luz (Haufces-Pyr^n6es). 


Not accounted for in Pedigree : — 

Nieces and nephew of Francis Sirr of St. Clement Danes, respectively Anne Sirr, 
Catherine Sirr, and Roger Sirr. 

The following cannot be accounted for : — 

Sirr, William, married Celia, dan. of Abraham Marshall, Gal way, October 1791. 
(" Hibernian Mag." — Marriages.) 

" In memory of Catherine Ann Sirr, who died April 17% 1830, aged 25 years," 
(Stone in chnrcnyardy Denston^ Suffolk.) 


Thomas Sir of Smithboro*, Weaver, Bachelor, and Mary Jane Rogers of Smith- 
boro', Spinster, 9 November 1829. John Sirr of Golanmurphy, Killievan, Cooper, 
Bachelor, and Mary Moore of Eillalina, Clones, Spinster, both of oonnty of Monaghan, 
8 Jnne 1831. (Marriage Licences, Clogher Diocese.) 

The spelling Surr has not been connected with Sirr or Sers, bat the following 
are noteworthy examples from Ireland : — 

Christoper Snrr, Sneriff of Qalwav. Will July 1668 ; mentions wife Marrian, son 
ffrancis Snrr, and daughter Elizabeth. 

William Surr, Wicklow, 1667. (Hist. MSS. Com. Report 10, Part V., 41.) 

"The Major I find to be Major Sirr, who is described by M' Whitelaw (the 
Historian of Dublin) as his * worthy old friend, intimate with the parties mentioned 
in the song, and particularly with the Earl of Meath.' "...." Major Sirr went to 
Ireland in 1757 with the Duke of Bedford. He was then a Captain in Sebright's, 
the 83'* regiment. Major Sirr was subsequently appointed town-major of the city 
of Dublin, and pratique master of the port. He was High Sheriff of the County of 
Dublin, and Deputy Judge-Advocate-General of Ireland ; and Governor of most 
of the institutions of the Irish metropolis. He was the father of the present well- 
known Major Sirr of Dublin." (" Popular Songs of Ireland." Crofton Croker : 
1839. R$ the Kilruddery Hunt.) 

Major Joseph Sirr knew Lord Heathfield (the defender of Gibraltar) intimately, 
and they were very much alike in appearance, so much so, that sometimes one was 
taken for the other. Heathfield, as General Eliott, was Commander of the Forces 
in Ireland. 

The dates given in their mother's Bible confirm the statements as to age 

(a) Of Henry Charles Sirr, in a return to the Lord Lieutenant, dated Dublin 
Castle, 28 August 1838, wherein he states he is in his 73rd year. 

(h) Of William Whiteway Sirr, given in Lieutenants* Certificates, 1795, vol. xix., 
Becord Office, London. 

A long correspondence in '^ The Weekly Irish Times " (9 March to 22 June 
1901^ followed " Recollections of Major Sirr." Much information was given, 
popular mendacity refuted, and attention drawn to Sir Robert PeePs reply to 
Brougham in the House of Commons : '' In the whole of the six years during 
which he had been acquainted with Maior Sirr he never knew a milder man, or one 
less disposed to exert authority unduly. (Hansard, N.S., vol. ix., p. 1309.) 

Two autograph letters of Major Sirr are included in the collection of Lord 
Hardwick's Papers. (B. M.) 

Letter of Joseph D'Arcy Sirr from Dublin Castle to Sir William Betham, Ulster 
King of Arms, r« the case of Marqais Clanric^rde and the Bishop of Meath, con- 
cerning the advowson of Killucan, 1834. (Add. MS. 23,683, B. M.) 

Joseph D'Arcy Sirr was elected a Member of The Royal Irish Academy in 1829. 

A declaration of French Ministers, refugees in England, London, 30 March 
1691, is signed by " Sers, formerly Minister in the Church of Montredon.'' (Hugue- 
not Society, " Proceedings," voL iii., p. 337.) It is pointed out in " L'Intermediare 
des Chercheurs et Curieux," under " Famille de Sirr, Sers, etc." (20 July 1898) : 
^' La famille Sers est, en efTet, originaire du haut Languedoc, des montagnes du 
Tarn, ou elle a encore des repr^seutants." Also a pastor of Brassac, Loth Sers, is 
mentioned as the probable ancestor of General Phillip Loth Seers (Sehrs) [the 
father of General Peter Seers given in " Deutche Biographic "], and several par- 
ticulars respecting him are enumerated. 

There are distinct families with the surname Seer and Seers (of East ADglian 
and other origin), sometimes erroneously connected with Sirr.

[Note. — There must be an error in these dates. The wife cannot haye had five 
children and died in 1628, her husband not dying until 1660, aged only 55 ; unless, 
indeed, the second date refers to the daughter without specifying that fact.] 

The MS. does not give the colours of the arms, and has three heads on the 
chief in the first quarter of No. i., and two heads on the chief in the dexter coat of 
No. V. The colours are from the "New View," but that does not give the 
inscription, and onlv the quartered shield and No. vi. This book also calls it a 
spacious monument by the north-west door, adorned '^ with his Head and half-body, 
with a book in his right hand, and under his left a death's head." The author of 
the '* New View " also says he was told this gentleman [».d. William Stidolph] gave 
ground by which the churchyard was much enlarged southward, but it appeared 
to him not to be half big enough for this very spacious parish, '^ where they have 
often 8 Burials or upwards in an Evening." 

Arms : Three battle-axes erect infesse, a chief ermine; impaling, A wyvern segreant 
mth a lion attacking it from behind. 

This is over the inscription, and beneath it is the dexter coat ; impaling. On a 
fesse between three lions' heads erased as many pheons, all within a bordure.

Extract from an anonymous MS. entitled "An Aphorismical Discovery of 
Treasonable Faction," preserved in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin, 
written between 1652 and 1660. Published in ^ Affairs in Ireland, 
1641—1652." (Edited by J. Gilbert.) 

1645. '^ Ormond and his faction examininge all theire witte, to invent a new 
scene, to frustrate this peere of this suposed comforte, to bringe this fatall design 
to the period of its wished end, had two strings in his bpwe that one fayliegn the 
other could not misse, the Lord Leutenant therefore seriously advfced the Earle of 
Tomo(nd) (all this while behavinge Himself neuter, and consequently not troubled 
by either par tie) to be reconciled to his cossen Insichuyne (whoe alias were foes) 
and caused my lord of Muskry, Tomond's nephewe, to worke this attonment, not for 
any other intention, then to worke the distruction of the E(ing's) partie, the 
Catholicks, and to impower the Prespeteriants, which reconcelment was to be 
perfected conditiona(l) that Tomond did give upp Bonrattie to Insichuyne, upon 



the hands of some prime comaan(der) of his : whereby would mightily indnre 
himself unto the Parliament, and woald thereby prove most gratfull .... Doth did 
nominate for governor of Bonrattie Culonell Adams .... thither arrivinge with 
600 men possessed himself of that brave house, and most comodious for the future 
trouble of the royalh'sts." 

Before giving up the castle of Bunratty to Colonel Adams the Earl of Thomond 
buried all his plate, etc., in the walls, but before he left some one told the soldiers 
that he had hidden it, and they made him shew where it was and took it all before 
his eyes. 

Lord Muskerry marched to Bunratty and laid siege to the castle. 

Extract from Richard Bellings' " History of the Irish Confederation and the War 
in Ireland, 1645-6." (Edited by J. Gilbert.) 

" Thirdly, the Earl of Thomond, who before lived peaceably, without offending 
the country, in his castle of Bunratty, admitted into it at this time a garrison of 
eight hundred foot and threescore horse, most of them reformed officers, and, 
sayling into England, left that place, which was plentifully provided of victuals, 
and so seated, as the guarrison might from thence make excursions into the rich 
countryes which for threescore miles long bordered upon the Shannon in the hands 
of the Parliament, under the command of (Captain McAdam) a stout officer, who 
began immediately to raise works to strengthen the castle, that, by reason of the 
marshes with which it was environed, might in a short time be upon the matter 

impregnably fortified." 

• # • • # 

Lord Muskerry encamped in the park and laid siege' to the castle, which was 

considered very strong. 

» • • • ♦ 

''Wherefore it was resolved that the two pieces of cannon newly sent them from 
Limerick should be planted to batter the little castle, which we have described to 
have stood near upon the edge of the outworks which the besieged had raised for 
defence of the place ; the Irish being from thence much annoyed in their trenches, 
and their approaches retarded thereby. The battery was for two dayes continued 
against the side of the castle, which being thin, the bullets only peirced it, without 
shaking the fabrick ; and so undaunted did those intrusted with the guard of it 
maintaine it, that still as the cannon enlarged the breach, they at every shot poured 
forth a volley by the hole the bullets had made, until, towards the evening of the 
second day Captain McAdam, who commanded in Bunratty, coming to view the 
place, and to give order for drawing off his men in case he found it not tenable, 
received a shot about his hams from a feildpiece that was planted among the 
gabions, in some of the higher stages of the fences made upon the side of the hill, 
to incommodate the enemy on his sally, not with any designe to play upon the 
castle, where it could be of little use ; but the cannoneer taking the upper window 
of the castle for a mark to try his skill, made that shot, which by accident was 
fatal to McAdam, who then was in the room, to which that window gave light, and 
being carried thence dyed that night. 

" Whereof the Lord Muskery being advertised by one that came off from the 
beseiged, and knowing how much they were disconratred at the loss of so valiant a 
person, and how little unanimous they were in the choyce of one to succeed him, 
he caused provision of fagotts to be made and resolved to take advantage of this 
their consternation and difference, and to assault them in their works." 

# • « • • 

After the attack the garrison capitulated for their lives, the officers retaining 
their swords, and they were allowed to return to Cork by sea.

Sacred to the Memory

1 Son of Thomas Sowdon, Esq', Mayor of this Borough 

Who fell at the early i^e of 21 in the ever memorable battle of Algiers 

On board H.M.S. T^eander August 27tS 1816 

In the noble cause of releasing his fellow creatures from captivity. 

His remains were consigned to the Bay of Algiers. 

This gallant, enterprising, and courageous young Officer was selected 

By his commander to execute a most important office 

While the ship was in a prilous state of danger, and performed it 

In a Manner which excited the utmost admiration 

But had scarcely returned to receive the thanks of Captain Ghetham 

When he was mortally wounded by a cannon-shot, and was 

The last victim to t^e ferocious enemy. 


In his death he displayed as much patience, fortitude & resignation 

As he evinced courage & bravery during the desperate conflict 

And his country has to mourn the premature loss of one 

Whose public and private endowments would doubtless 

Have rendered him one of its greatest ornaments.

help me, But it is Thou that savest us from our enemies, Lord

Paul Btuhf the Latt Rector of EAington and First Bishop of Bristol, 1 490—1658. By Abthub 

SOHOMBBBO. 1903. Devizes: *' Gazette*' Office. 
This is a little brochure ^hicta will be yery acceptable to Wiltshire meo. Paul Bash was born 
in 1490, and his parents being fairly placed he aspired to studying at the Oxford house of the 
Bonhommes near the site of Wadham College. He soon acquired a position, taking his Bachelor's 
degr^ee in 1518, at which time he was numbered among the celebrated poets of Oxford. In 1539 
he was Canon Beddentiary of Sarnm and Chaplain to Henty YIII., and died in 1553, having 
been consecrated to the See of Bristol in 1542. 

This little work gives his portrait, which now hangs in the Bishop's Palace at BristoL By 
a lengthy deed (which is given in full) he surrenders Edington Monastery ; and his will, 
September 1558, is also given. His monument is shewn from a tracing of Bush's monument under 
a canopy of stone, but little can now be deciphered. In the sanctuary his arms were impaled 
with those of the See, and in the vestry can be seen an engraving of them. 

The work is nicely got up, stitched in a coloured wrapper, and making 28 pp., and forms 
a neat monument to a worthy man and a devout Christian. Mr. Schomberg has done his best 
to immortalise the former history of one of our earliest bishops. 

l%e Journal of the Em Lihris Society. Vol. XIII., Parte 3, 4, 5, and 6, for March, April, May, 

and June 1903. London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 
These four Parts range as fair examples of the Work as it goes along. As frontispiece to the 
^ March Number is the plate of Mr. Arnold Greig, and as a separate plate it has that of 
Captain G-. C. Hwinton, March Pursuivant Besides these are four legal bookplates, five designed 
by Mr. 0. H. McCall—the one of Hermann GrUnebaum being very artistic, a very neat sketch 
for Willesden Green Public Library, besides the arms chosen for the Grammar School, Tavistock. 
The whole forms a very good number. 

The April Part has for frontispiece a very good library plate, engraved for W. A. Balaus by 
Martin Tyroff about 1760, and a plate by Vinycomb for Mr. Drew Appleby, done in that artistes 
delicate toach with scroU side ornamentation, and in the centre the beautiful spire of St. Nicholas 
Church, Belfast There are two plates shewn by Mr. Graham Johnston, another giving the 
entrance to Gadshill of Dickens notoriety, with Pickwick fishing in pond, and one of Mr. Leonard 
Courtney shewing his house in Cheyne Walk, Old Chelsea, and also that of Mr. George Cave, 
giving a perspective view of his house. The plate designed by Mr. French for Mr. and Mrs. 
Bumham is well worthy of being shewn, the landscape with the mill and the library in front 
being very original ; another by Mr, French is for the Worcester Art Museum. 


The May Part ghres ns three plates bj Bmno H^roux, remafkably well done and original, 
the one shewing St. Peter's at Rome in the distance being very effective. Eight legal bookplates 
are » good accompaniment to the list of legal bookplates compiled by S. A. Grundy-Newmao* 
which has been spread over the four Parts. 

The Part for Jane has the bookplate of the Golqnhoon Clnb, a dining clnb in connection 
with the Royal Society of Literature. It was designed by Philip H. Newman, and is well 
worth keeping as a sample of modem designing. There are f oar plates given of the Boston 
Public Library, three with portraits, vis. : John Adams, George Ticknor, and Longfell(^ ; also 
the library plate of the King's Own Borderers, and that of the Taunton Castle Library. The 
plate of the Plymouth Proprietary Library is also shewn. The rough list of legal bookplates is 
still carried on, accompanied by four plates. These all combined form another good Part. 

Fenland Nota and Queries. VoL V^ Part 67. April 1908. Peterborough : George C, Caster, 

Market Place. 

W£ have in the first place to wish the Reverend Editor a perfect recovery from his late illness, 
which had kept him away from his parish up to April last. The contents of the present Number 
are as usual interesting, one giving an account of the skating at Whittlesey Mere in 1846-6 being 
very amusing. There is a short account of Bishop Marsh being mobbed at Peterborough for 
taking the King's side against Queen Caroline. He prepared himself for the worst, for he was 
at the time represented as dressed in his sister-in-law's skirts, and he meant to beat a retreat into 
Hunts by means of a boat from the back of the palace. Feeling also ran high in London against 
him some years after. Mr. W. B. Foster gives a list of the Vicars of Moulton, Lincolnshire, 
from 1236 up to 1899, and there is also a list of the sons and daughters of inhabitants given in 
an inquisition made in Moulton. Although dates are not given, mention is made that *' John 
Leland the antiquary had a brother John," who took care of him in his lunacy. This is 
corroborated by a Mr. William Cole, who dates from Milton July 8, 1772. 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. No. 4, Vol. X. April 1903. Virginia 
Historical Society, Richmond, U.6.A. 

As usual local history forms the main articles of interest in this magazine, and for the present 
generation it must form most pleasing reading, as among other measures the **Two Penny Act" 
brought in by the clergy was entirely defeated, and strained the bond between " the King and 
the colonists, which was but the prelude to the combat that snapped the bond asunder." 

John Brown's correspondence is still continued, although he is in prison and daily expecting 
the gallows, which, he says, appears "in more glorious and resplendent light than that which 
surrounds the throne of a king." As an uneducated man he has all the rhapsody of a fanatic, 
as he wished to say to his executors, " I am immortal ;" and so, we suppose, he died with the 
same conceit, for his last letter given is just before he expected execution. His case was like 
many other men before him— criminal for the sake of notoriety. The Part contains some 
excellent genealogical notices of the four families of John Minor and that of the Hemdon 
family. It concludes with an ample Index, together with the Title to Vol. X. and Proceedings 
at the Annual Meeting in January 1903.

y® emenent | graces of Charity, Piety, Religion, constancy & patience. | She 
departed this life Jan. xv in the yeare | of Redemptiou mdcxlyi, aged | lzxx. 

The MS. says, " On the south side in ye chancell a small monument." The 
" New View " calls it " a plain black and white marble monument," and gives the 
inscription with a few variations : thus, "near " before "here resteth," Dame for D, 
and Knight instead of Ent. As the monument is gone we have no means of 
deciding which is correct. 

The " New View " says of the next monument that it is on the south side of the 
chancel, westward from the Stanhope monument, being a handsome white marble 
monument adorned with cherubims, cornucopia, etc., and the copy of the inscription 
varies in some minor points. 

" A monument hard by the former " (Ai*ms : Or, a lion rampant double-queued 
vert; impaling Argent, a fret gules): — ^To the liveing memory of Christopher 
Dudley | of Yeanwith in Westmerland was this monument by | his sorrowfull wife

It's Epitaph enough to have that name 
A Dudley too who in the basest time 
When to be just and loyall was a crime 
Was both : 'gainst Bebells bravely stood 
Unshaken and Undaunted with a flood 
Of Tyranny. Now his Tombes sole intent

When Rebels dye a tombe some life may give, 
He actuates the marble, makes it live.

But goodness crowns them ; that is all in all.

The Magennises were from a very early period the territorial Lords of Clan 
Aodha under the O'HaugheyB, Chiefs of Iveagh in the County of Down, claiming 
descent from the famous warrior Connall Ceanach, and ranking as the head of the 
Clanna Rory. Morris McLoughlin, King of Ireland (1150 — 68), granted, about 
1160, a Charter to the Abbey of Newry, among the witnesses to which is Aodh 
(Hugh), the great Majrennis, Chief of the Clan Aodha in O'Neach Uladh, now the 
Baronies of Upper and Lower Iveagh, County Down. 

In 1172 Mulmurry Macmurrough, Lord of Muintir Birn, was slain by Hugh 
Magennis and the Clan Aodha of Ui Eathach Uladh. Muintir Birn was a part of 
Tyrone on the borders of Monaghan. 

In 1178 Hugh Magennis and the Clan Aodha invaded and plundered the third 
part of Armagh, and about three months afterwards the said Hugh was slain. 

In 1208 Duvinnis Magennis, Lord of Clan Aodha, was slain by the son of 
Donslevy 0*Haughy, Chief of Iveagh. Subsequently the Magennises extended 
their territory and became Lords of Iveagh. 

In 1314, when Edward II. sought the aid of the magnates of Ireland, he 
directed an especial letter to Admillis MacAnegus, ^' Duci Hiberniorum et Onenagh,*' 
he being then ^ The Magennis."

In 1880 Art Magennis defeated the English and the people of Orior (part of 
Armagh) in a battle in which O'Hanlon, Chief of Orior, and many of the English 
were slain. Subsequently Edmund Mortimer, who had married the granddaughter 
of Edward III., came over as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, when Magennis, who 
with various native chiefs had waited upon him, was treacherously taken prisoner 
in Mortimer's house. After this the Irish, and many of the English, became afraid 
to place any confidence in Mortimer, or trust themselves in his power. This Art 
Magennis, '^ sole prop of the hospitality of Ireland in his time," died in 1888 of the 
plague at Trim, where he was imprisoned. 

In 1896 Cu-Uladh-Magennis, heir to the Lordship of Iveagh, was slain by the

assisted by Mac-j-Neill Boy, Chief of Clannaboy. 

In 1420 the Earl of Ormond, Lord Deputy, waging war with the UltoniauB to

delivered up his hostages to him. 

In 1422 Niall Garv O'Donnell, Lord of Tirconnell, invaded Iveagh and subju- 
gated Magennis, who subsequently assisted him in his expedition into Connaught

and demolished his castle of Lough Bricrenn (now Lough Brickland, County Down),

Ards, assisted by the English of Dublin, when the latter were victorious, the Chief 
of Clannaboy being taken prisoner. 

In 1488 Brian Magennis Q' The Magennis "), son of Art, died, and his brother 
Hugh was inaugurated in his place. 

In 1491 Echmily, son of Hugh, son of Art Magennis, was slain in his own 
house in a nocturnal assault by the sons of Melaghlin, the son of Murtough, son of 
Owen O'Neill. 

In 1493 Hugh, son of Art, son of Hugh Magennis, assisted Henry Oge O'Neill 
against Hugh Roe O'Donnell at the battle of Beanna-Boircha (part of the Mourne 
Mountains), where the latter was victorious. 

In 1495 he again assisted O'Neill in invading Fermanagh, but they had to 
agree to Maguire's terms for peace. 

In 1501 Rory McMahon, son of Brian, son of Redmond, was slain by the sons 
of Magennis. 

In 1504 (15 August) Donnell Magennis, with several other Irish chiefs, assisted 
the Lord Justice (Garrett, son of Thomas, Earl of Kildare) against MacWilliam 
Burke of Clanricard, Turlough O'Brien, etc., at the battle of Cnoc-Tuagh (now 
Knockdoc, a hill near Galway), where MacWilliam Burke and his allies were 

In 1520 Donnell, the son of Hngh, the son of Art Magennis (" The Magennis "), 
died, and his brother Phelim the Hospitible was inaugurated in his place. He 
also died, and Edmond Boy Magennis was styled '* The Magennis." 

In 1526 Glasney, the son of Hugh Magennis, Abbot of the Monks of Newry 
and Prior of Down and Saul, was slain by the sons of Donnell Magennis, namely 
Donnell Oge and his kinsmen. 

In 1539 Murtough Magennis was taken prisoner by the men of Oriel after the^ 
defeat of the northern forces by Lord liconard, the Lord Justice, at the battle of* 
Bel-atha-hoa (now Belahoe, Barony of Farney, County Monaghan), and after some 
time was put to death by them at the instigation of his own tribe, who bribed them 
to commit the deed. 

In 1550 Arthur Magennis swore fidelity to Edward VI., and was by him 
confirmed in the bishopric of Dromore, while Eugene (Owen) Magennis was 
about the same time Bishop of Derry. 

In 1566 Mary, the daughter of Manns, son of Hugh Duv, son of Hugh Roe 
O'Donnell, Prince of Tirconnell, and wife of "The Magennis," died on 8 October. 
At the Parliament, which m^t in Dublin 26 April 1585 under Sir John Perrott, th^ 


Lord Deputy, the MageDnises were represented by Hugh, the son of Donnell Oge, the 
Bon of Donnell Duv alias Ciar (of the dark brown hair) Magennis. 

In 1595 Hugh, son of Hugh, son of Donnell Oge Magennis, a man of his patri* 
mony of greatest name and renown among the English and Irish of Ireland, died 

In 1607 Catherine Magennis, daughter of ''The Magennis,*' who had married 
Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, left Ireland, on board a vessel from Lough Swilly, 
for Normandy. On the Plantation of Ulster, Bryan Oge Mac Rory Magennis of 
Edenticallow, County Down, having surrendered all his lordship, precinct, or circuit 
of Killwarlin, with all the townlands within the said territory, obtained a re-grant 
thereof in 1611 to hold the same henceforth free from Royal Composition. Other 
members of the family obtained grants of estates in the same county. Sir Arthur 
Magennis, Knt., also releasing to the King all his claim and right to the territory 
of Iveagh, had, in 1613, a grant of various and extensive townlands of his old 
inheritance within Iveagh, the extent of which was soon after directed to be 
ascertained on inquisition. He was raised to the Peerage of Ireland as Viscount 
Magennis of Iveagh, County Down, by a patent dated at Westminster 18 Jnly 
1623. He married Sarah, daughter of Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, and had 
issue Hugh, his heir ; Evelyn, married Sir James MacSorly Boy MacDonnell, Knt., 
ancestor of the present Earl of Antrim ; Catherine, married Colonel Adams (vide 
p. 8^ ; and another daughter, married to Bryan O'Neill of EdindufiP, Carrick, ancestor 
of the late Viscount O'Neill. Viscount Iveagh, dving 21 May 1629, was succeeded 
by his son Hngh Magennis as second Viscount, who married Mary, eldest daughter 
of Sir John Bellew of Bellew's Town, and dying, was succeeded by his son Arthur 
Magennis as third Viscount, who with Daniel Magennis of Angerstown, County 
Meath, was attainted in 1642. At the Supreme Council in 1646 sat Arthur 
Magennis, Roman Catholic Bishop of Down and Connor, as one of the Spiritual Peers, 
while of the Commons were five of the family. Oliver Cromwell's Act of 1652 excepted 
from pardon for life and estate Viscount Iveagh, Sir Con Magennis, Knt., of the 
County of Down, and five others of the name. The declaration of Royal thanks in 
the Act of Settlement includes Captain Phelim Magennis and Lieutenant Bryan 
Magennis, of the Province of Ulster, with Lieutenant Con "Mac Gennis" of Iveagh, 
Countv Down. Lord Iveagh, dying 1683, was interred 1 May in St. Catherine's 
Church, Dublin (Lodge's "Peerage," vol. iv., p. 170), and was succeeded by either his 
brother or uncle, Bryan Magennis, as fourth Viscount, who appears in the Pension 
List of the Establishment for 1687*88 under the name of "Arthur, Viscount 
Iveagh '* for a pension of £300 [see original vellum manuscript in the Library of 
Trinity College, Dublin, marked MS. E.LL, dated 3 February at Whitehall, and 
signed by the Council in England]. Besides Colonel Lord Iveagh, the name of 
Magennis is commissioned on five other regiments. Lord Iveagh and his sept 
furnished James II. with a Regiment of Dragoons and another of Infantry. This 
nobleman sat in the Parliament of 1689 ; while in the Commons, Murtough 
Magennis of Green Castle and Eiver Magennis of Castlewellan represented the 
County Down, and Bernard Magennis of Bally-gorionbeg was one of the members 
for the Borough of Killileagh. Lord Iveagh was appointed Oovernor (i^. Lord 
Lieutenant) of the County of Down, while two other members of the family were 
his deputy-governors. 

In 1690 Lord Iveagh was Governor of Drogheda with a garrison of 1500 men. 
On the day succeeding the Battle of the Boyne, King William sent Brigadier de la 
Melloni^re with a thousand horse and a party of foot to summon the town to sur- 
i*ender, and on their hesitation to inform the garrison that he should bring up his 
cannon, when they must expect no quarter. Lord Iveagh surrendered on condition 
that be and his gan'ison should be conveyed to Athlone, the nearest garrisoned 
town, with their baggage, leaving behind them their stores, ammunition and arms, 
except the officers' swords. 

In June 1691 two oificers of this sept were killed in Athlone, and at the battle 
of Aug[hrim 12 July 1691 was taken prisoner Lieat,-Oolonel Murtough Magennis 


(for to that rank had a Captain of Sir Neill CNeiU'e Dragoons arrived hy reason 
of the slaughter of that gallant regiment at the Battle of the Boyne). When 
Galway surrendered, 26 July 1691, Lady Iveagh and her daughter, being then 
resident in the town, had an especial protection for themselves in the Articles of 
Capitulation. She had been Lady Margaret De Burgh, daughter of William, the 
seventh Earl of Clanricarde, and had married 1689 Viscount Iveagh. At the close 
of the campaign he did not accompany the Irish Army to France, bat entered the 
Austrian Service with a choice battalion of 500 men, part of the 2000 Irish troops 
of King James's old army, who were landed fi-om Cork at Hamburg in June 1692. 
He employed them against the Turks, by whom they were so severely handled that 
the remnant was drafted into other corps of the Imperial Army. The attainders of 
1691 present twelve of the name of Magennis. Lord Iveagh died in 1692 without 
an heir, when the title became extinct. 

Lady Iveagh married secondly Colonel Thomas Butler of Eilcash, and died 
19 July 1744, leaving issue three sons and five daughters. 

A Captain Murtough Magennis of Bulkeley's Brigade was wounded at Lauffield 
in 1747.

The family of O'Neill descend from Niall Olumdubh, Monarch of Ireland, who 
was killed in battle a.d. 954 against the Danes. Their title was ''The O'Neill.'' 
One of them, Henry Mac Owen O'Neill, married Eleanor, eldest daughter of 
Thomas, seventh Earl of Kildare; their son Con Moi'e O'Neill married a daughter 
of Gerald, eighth Earl of Kildare, and had issue two sons. Con Baccagh O'Neill, or 
" The Lame," and Art Oge O'Neill, ancestor of Sir Phelim Roe O'Neill {vids p. 8). 
The elder son Con, on relinquishing the title of '*The O'Neill," was in 1552 created 
by Heury VIII. Earl of Tyrone, with remainder to his son Matthew, created Baron 
of Dnngannon, who was killed during his father's lifetime by his brother Shane, 
leaving three sons, Brian, Hugh, and Cormac. The eldest, Brian, became second 
Earl of Tyrone, but was soon murdered by his brother Hugh, who became in 1585 
the third Earl of Tyrone, but throwing off his allegiance to England he assumed 
the ancient title of ^' The O'Neill," and engaged in a war against the English, 
which, for a time, was successful, gaining several victories over the armies sent 
against him ; but after the siege of Kinsale in 1603, finding his cause hopeless, 
he fled to Spain. He was attainted in 1612 by James I., when his title. Earl of 
Tyrone, became forfeited. He died 20 July 1616 at Bome, having had issue five 
sons : (1) Hugh O'Neill, died s.p. in Italy. (2) Henry O'Neill, a Lieut.-General in 
the Spanish Army, where he was called El Conde de Tyrone. He died leaving 
issue, which became extinct in the male line in the second generation. (3) Shane 
O'Neill,* remained in Ireland. (4) Con O'Neill, fled to Spain. (5) Bryan O'Neill, 
hanged at Brussels in 1617 for high treason against James I. 

* In 1895 the death occurred in Paris of the Comte O'Neill de Tyrone (as he was known in 
that city), who claimed to be a descendant of this 8hane O'Neill, and hereditary head of the 
family. Although his family had long been settled in France, he kept up his interest in Ireland, 
and was well known to Irishmen visiting Paris. During the Franco-German War he identified 
himself with the Irish Ambulance.

The race appointed I have run, 

The combats o'er, the prize is won. 

And now my witness is on high 

And now my records in the sky. 

Not in my innocence I trust 

I bow before thee in the dust 

And through my Saviour's blood alone 

I look for mercy at thy throne. 

I leave the world without a tear 

Save for the friends I held so dear. 

To heal their sorrows Lord descend 

And to the friendless prove a friend. 

I come, I come at thy command, 

I give my spirit to thy hands. 

Stretch forth thy everlasting arms 

And shield me in the last alarms. 

The hour of my departure's come, 

I hear the voice that calls me home. 

Now, my God, let troubles cease, 

Now let thy servant die in peace.

Lord Castlereagh (Chief Secretary of Ireland) to Mr. Wickham (Under Secretary to 
the Duke of Portland, Prime Minister). 

Dublin Castle, 

Secret] November 3, 1798. 

Sib, I understand from Captain Taylor that Lord Cornwallisf has been 
pleased to recommend an arrangement in favour of Major Sirr, highly advantageous 
to his interest. The services Major Sirr has rendered to the King's Government, 
since T have been in office, are such as to make me feel it an incumbent duty to 
bear testimony, in the strongest terms, to his merits. 

From the want of any efficient system of police in this city, he has been con- 
stantly employed by Government, on everv occasion which called for ^reat personal 
exertions, discretion, & courage ; his life has frequently been exposed, particularly 
in the arrest of Lord Edward Fitzgerald. I can truly state that, during the most 
trying period of public danger, the metropolis was peculiarly indebted for its 
tranquility to the unceasing activity of Maior Sirr, assisted by M' Swan, who so 
nearly lost his life in that same struggle, which proved fatal to M^ Ryan, & in which 
Major Sirr was exposed to very imminent danger. 

Permit me to request that you will communicate the above to the Duke of 
Portland, and assure bis Grace that the King has not a more &ithfnl officer than 
Major Sirr in his service. 

I have the honour to be, etc.,

His Excellency The Lord Lieutenant. 

My Lord, 

Having laid before the King yonr Excellency's letter of the 10^^ 
Instant enclosing a list of successions, which you propose for the army in Ireland, 
I am Command^ to acquaint your Excellency that his Majesty is graciously pleased 
to approve of all of them except as to the appointment of Town Major of Dublin, 
which it would be highly objectionable to have sold, but his Majesty has been 
pleased to say that a Lieutenant Colonelcy on the Irish Establishment or a troop of 
Cavalry may hereafter be sold to reimburse the present Town Major, and that Major 
Sirr shall be now appointed to that situation without purchase. The necessary 
Commissions will be immediately prepared for the Royal Signature & transmitted to 
yonr Excellency in the usnal manner. 

I am, etc., 


The Lord Lieutenant having recommended him, Sirr lodged Three Thousand 
Guineas for the Commission (the pay of Town Major then l^ing less than subse- 
quently). Sirr was gazetted to a majority of Dragoons, and the purchase of the 
Town Majority effected by the sale of that Commission. The Town Majority was 
unexpectedly presented without purchase in acknowledgment of great and voluntary 
services beyond mere duty, and the ofBoe created into a very active and confidential

Babkeb, Edward, bom at Wandsworth 19 December 1671. He was the son of James Barker 
and grandson of Edward Barker. He was baptized two days afterwards in Wandsworth Church. 
His father died next year, and was buried on 13 January 1672-3 in the Church. His grand- 
mother (Mrs. Barker, sen.) paid the churchwardens 15«. 4d, for *'her husband's and sonnes 
grave in the church." His grandfather was buried on 23 January in the same year, ten days

educated him. He was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1690. In 1729 he was made Reader, 
Treasurer in 1732, and he was app^nuted Cursitor Baron of the Exchequer on 9 May 1743. 
He resigned office on 19 April 1755, and four years after he died on 10 June, and was buried on 
16 June in the family vault in Wandsworth Church. His age in the Burial Register is given

" On 3rd August 1796 Vice-Admiral Sir George Keith Elphinstone was lying in Simon's Bay, 
South Africa, and in his fleet was the * Sceptre,' Captain William Essington." (James's *^ Naval 
History," vol. i., p. 636.) 

** On the 17th August the Dutch squadron of nine vessels, under Admiral Lucas, capitulated.** 
(Jfttrf., p. 636.) 

"On 9th October 1797 Captain William Essington commanded the * Triumph,* one of the 
British North Sea fleet, under Admiral Adam Duncan. On 11th they engaged with the Dutch 
fleet, under De Winter. The * Triumph * had for opponent the * Wassenaer,* which she compelled 
to strike. With others she attacked the Dutch flagship the ' Vryheid,* which at length struck. 
The * Wassenaer,' although she had struck to the * Triumph,* was fired at by a Dutch brig that 
followed her out of the line, and which brig actually compelled her to rehoist her colours. The 
* Bussel * soon afterwards coming up, the * Wassenaer again struck them, and was taken 
possession of. (Battle of Camperdown.) Tbe * Triumph * had 25 seamen, 3 marines, and 1 boy 
killed ; her captain, 1st and 3rd lieutenants (Patrick Chapman and George Trollope), master 
(James Bead), 1 xnidshipman (Mr. Jones), and 60 seamen and marines wonnded. Captain 
Holland of the * Wassenaer * was mortally wounded early in the action. Gold medals were 
struck and presented to the admirals and captains to be worn. Richard Power was 1st lieutenant 
of * Triumph,* ** (/Wrf., vol. ii.) 

He was presented at Court 30 Oct. 1801, when he was made one of the Knights Commanders of 
the Most Honourable Military Order of the Bath, and was present with Lord Nelson (who wore 
the diamond aigrette in his hat presented to him for his services by the Court of Naples), 
Admiral Edward Hughes, and others, at the Palace.

7%s Journal of the Ex Lihrie Society, Vol. XIII., Parta 7 and 8, for July and August 1903. 
London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 

The July Part has for frontispiece the bookplate of Arthur Hopton, of Clements Inn, 1611 ; it 
is all in outline, and unusually large. A long account of the family from 1470 is given by the 
Rev. Wickham M. Birch, with five smaller arms. Another one of George Frederick Bodley of 
Bridgefoot is large, but has some good mantling about it. Mr. Jewers gives an account of the 

* A descendant of the ancient royal family of Russia. (See *< Wandsworth Notes and 
Queries.'*) / ^ s 



bookplate of General Sir Ee^uald Pole-Carew, which is carefnlly drawn by Mr. Q-. W. Etc. 
There are four bookplates designed bj the Hon. Frances Wolselej, that of the Field-Marshal 
Visoount haTing a mantling very artistically arranged. The bookplate of Mr. A. Prioe Haig, 
as designed by Mr. Graham Johnston, is well done. 

The August Part has the plate of Chelsea Public Library, the figures rather ron^ly drawn, 
and five bookplates engraved by Mr. F. G. House, and inserted as a supplement by Messrs. 
Truslove and Hanson ; each plate is well delineated, particularly the one for Miss Fetherston- 
haugh Frampton. The old plates and the improved new bookplate is shewn by Mr. J. Rogers 
Bees, who has a little Paper on the subject, and illustrates it by shewing the title of a *' New 
Dictionary " by William Walker, B.D., in 1691. 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. Vol. XXXIY., Nob. 2 and 3, April and 

July 1903. Society's Office : 226 West 58th Street, New York, U.S.A. 
This is the best of the genealogical periodicals which come to England, and the Part for April 
has an excellent portrait of Mr. Heber Reginald Bishop, one of America's Railway Directors, 
and celebrated as the largest collector of jade, which he finally presented to the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art, New York, shortly afterwards dying of heart disease. 

The next article with a plate is the Juroel Mansion, at Manhattan Island. It ways used at 
times by General Washington and by the officers of the British Army, and went through many 
vicissitudesj and finally became the head-quarters of the war party. Of Church Records, those of 
the Corporation of Zion in New Gtermantown, and Registers of Marriages, Baptisms, and Deaths 
in East Hampton are next given, followed by the family history of Edward Fuller, and inscrip- 
tions from Gilead Cemetery, Carniel, N.Y., and a general Obituaiy, etc., complete the April 
Number, which must be interesting to many Americans. 

The July Part has a portrait of Mr. Asa Fitch, Physician and Naturalist, who for fifty years 
had made the latter a study, and was created State Entomologist in 1854. Several of the 
papers in the April Part are continued, and an account is given of the Dumont Family and John 
de Witt, with his portrait. An Obituary and Book Notices close the Part. 

Fenland Notes and Queriee, VoL V., Part 58. July 1908. Peterborough : George C. Caster, 

Market Place. 

\ This Part begins with a good account of Dr. Richard Howland, Bishop of Peterborough in 1584. 

' It is embellished, too, with his portrait, autograph, and seal ; he had it when he was ordained. 

^ His father was a Salter of London, and he was one among ten other sons and one daughter. 

^^ His seventh brother was knighted as Sir Giles, and was a Grocer of London. A Paper ofn 

'•^ Charteris Church Notes, written in 1746, is interesting. There are excellent accounts given 

again of the drainage of the Fens in Charles the First's time, and a company of noblemen was 

ormed to carry it out. 

Virginia Magazine of Hittory and Biography, Vol. XI., No. 1. July 1903. Virginia 
Historical Society, Richmond, n.S.A. 
Thb Yif^nia Committee of Correspondence, the Surrender of Virginia in 1651-2, and an account 
of Virginia in 1638-9, occupy a fair amount of this Part, and John Brown's letters are continued. 
Isle of Wight County Records and Virginia Gleanings in England, and the Militia in the 
Revolution, are interesting locally, and the genealogy of the Brooke Family and the Hemdon 
Family, besides several others, and the usual historical Notes and Queries, complete the Part. 

Thb Hableian Society have just issued Vol. II. of '* Lincolnshire Pedigrees" to its Members.

Aubrey, in his "Natural History of Surrey," gave a transcript of an inscription at Wands- 
worth, Surrey, now lost : — 

** Here lieth the Body of Edward Snow, of Chicksands in the county of Bedford, esquire, in 
memory of whom Emma his wife, dauj^hter to William Byue, in the County of Sussex, esquire, 
erected this monument. He had issue Elizabeth, Alice, and Sarah. He deceased at the Mannor 
of Alfarthing Anno Dom. 1687." 

Edward Snow was second son of Richard Snow (Will proved P.C.C. 1554, 18, More) of 
Chicksands, co. Bedford, and his wife Elizabeth (Will proved P.C.C. 1587, 17, Spencer), a 
gentlewoman of the Privy Chamber to Queen Elizabeth, and daughter of ... . Cavendish, aunt 
to the old Countess of Shrewsbury. He married Emma, daughter of William Bynd of Wake- 
herst, Sussex, and his wife " AUice," daughter of Richard Colepeper of Wakeherst. After her 
husband's death in 1587 she married John Bowyer, J.P., second son of John Bowyer of Camber- 
well, Surrey, who died 2 June 1623, s.p. 

As the Parish Registers as well as the Churchwardens* Accounts for the parish of Wands- 
worth are missing for 1587, there is no record locally of Edward Snow. His name does not 
occur in the parish deeds, though in 1608 Cecily Riche assigns a lease of certain lands belongring 
to the church to John Bowyar, who was Lord of the Manor of Alfarthing in 1698. He appears 
to have received this manor from his grandfather Robert Draper, and Edward Snow was bis 

The will of Edwarde Snowe of Alfarthing, par. Wansworthe, Surrey, is in P.C.C, 73, Spencer 

Edward and Emma Snow had three daughters, Elizabeth, Alice, and Sarah. 

1602 Feb. 2 Sir Robert Albany, Knight, married M** Alee Snow ; at Wandswprth. (Wands- 
worth Parish Registers.) 

Sir Robert was son of William Albaney of London and his wife Thomazin, daughter of 
Richsrd Butle. 

Sir Robert and Alice had issue, Emme, AUice, Rob^ (set. 10 in 1623), William (»t. 8 in 
1623), Frances, and Thomazin. 

1607 Aug. 10 Sir Richard Conquest, Knight, married M" Sara Snowe; at Wandsworth. 
(Wandsworth Parish Registers.) 

Sir Richard was second son of Sir Richard Conquest of Houghton, Beds, by Dorothy, daughter 
of Robert Hewet of Ampthill, Beds, Esq. 

Sir Richard and Sarah had one child, Emma. 

The family of William Bynd intermarried with that of John and Elizabeth Bowyer : John 
Bynd was first husband of Elizabeth Bowyer ; Catharine Bynd was married to Sir Edmond 
Bowyer ; and Emma Bynd was married to Edward Snow and afterwards to John Bowyer.

John Hbbvey, Esq., a difltinguished member of the House of Commons, 
Hereditary High Steward of Bury St. Edmunds, was elevated to the Peerage, 
23 March 1703, as Barm Hervey of Ickworth^co. Suffolk^ and created, 19 Oct. 1714, 
Earl of Bristol. He married Ist, 1 Nov. 1688, Isabella, daughter and sole heir 
of the Right Hon. Sir^Robert Carr, Bart., of Sleaford, co. Lincoln, Chancellor of the 
Duchy of Lancaster, and granddaughter (maternally) of Lord Arlington, by whom 
(who died 7 March 1692-3) he had a son Carr, Lord Hervey (who died unman-ied

Marshall, that, being the thirty-ninth child and seventh son of one father by one 
mother, he might be allowed a difference in his Arms to be borne by him in 
commemoration thereof. 

This was transmitted by the hands of Blanche Lyon, who was at this time the 
Duke's private pursuivant.

" Thomas S* George, Garter, 

" Principall King of Armes. 

"Hbnby S* GEOEaB, 

" Clarenceux King of Armes.' 

I would draw attention to several interesting points : The William Ryley 
mentioned was called Norroy by the Parliament, and advanced to be Clarenceux on 
the death of Arthur Squibb in May 1646, after which Edward Byshe, who was 
named Garter in 1646, and Ryley seem to have constituted the whole stuff of the 
Heralds' College and took all the fees they could make. The proclamation 
4 September. 1660, addressed to Sir Edward Walker (he had been deposed in 1645 
and was recreated Garter 1660), declares, "Whereas Edward Bish, Arthur Squibb, 
and W™ Ryley have for divei-s years usurped,'* etc. It then enacts that all grants 
of Arms made by them be null and void, and orders them to be destroyed and 
defaced. (The original is at the College — see my " Earl Marshal's Court in 
England," pp. 58-9.) Therefore Thomas Greenhill's fatiier's grant was null and 
void ! Among the Papers at the Heralds' College there is a note that a drawing on 
vellum of the Arms, as altered and sought for, had been submitted by Thomas. 
No doubt this was the work of his friend Blanche Lyon ; and the wording, " in 
consideration of his services to his Grace and his Family," shewing that Thomas 
was and had been for some time their medical attendant, readily accounts for the 
friendly relations of these two — Thomas Greenhill and Blanche Lyon — who put 
forward and aided Greenhill's application. I think it is extremely rare to get so 
strong a concurrence of proof. We have (1) Thomas declaring the most unusual 
and startling fact of the family in which he was thirty-ninth, and on that plea 
asking its heraldic recognition! (2) Blanche Lyon, the Earl Marshall's own 
Herald, who had ready means of verifying that extraordinary statement, risks his 
future career in placing before his Master a statement which the Medical profession 
declares to be now impossible. (8) The Earl Marshall knew him as his medical 



attendant, and was willing to testify to snch an extraordinary event by ordering 
the thirty-nine Mullets as desired to be placed on the Crest in demonstration 
thereof. (4) The Kings of Arms, jealous of the honour of the Earl Marshall 
and their own dignity, must have satisfied themselves by evidences — before they 
would caiTy to completion what, if not exactly true, would have been a transparent 
and conspicuous farce — easily disproved, and entailing disgrace and shame on all 
implicated t I would not have considered all this .as at all necessary, except to 
prove that whatever limit to the extent of families may now prevail, we have here 
an indisputable case in 1698, and physiological changes must nave come since ! 

Among the Papers preserved at the Heralds' College is a volume of much later 
date, entitled ^ Pingo MSS.," where, at fols. 276-9, are collections for the Greenhill 
Pedigree — from William Greenhill of Greenhill, the father of Thomas — after whose 
name appears/' 89 children, 7 of which were sons,'' but only the names of the six 
sons who survived are entered ; all the rest died young. William, the father, is 
described as Secretary to General Monk (created Duke of Albemarle in 1660 ; 
died 3 January 1670) and of Hyde in Abbots Langley, Herts, as weU as of 
Greenhill in Harrow, Middlesex. Cussans, in his "Historv of Hertfordshire,'* 
helps us here, as he notes (vol. iii., p. 88) the conveyance of the Manor of Hyde in 
1612 by Lawrence Greene of London to Henry Greenhill of Greenhill Grove in the 
parish of Harrow, from whose son* William it descended to another William, the 
father of our Thomas, " chirurgion." Henry, the eldest son of this William and 
brother of Thomas, sold the Manor in 1714 to Edward Strong, a noted Mason of 
London. Cussans, when writing his work, had never seen the original grant to 
Thomas ; at p. 97 he gives the date 1698, but quotes from an incorrect copy 
among the Stow MSS., No. 670, in British Museum, fol. 78. 

It is mentioned (Pingo MSS.) that the children were all at single births except 
one, and that seven only of the thirty-nine were surviving in 1698. 

In " Gent. Mag." for 1805, Part I., p. 405, " Chris. Johnson *' communicates 
that a small portrait of Mrs. Greenhill — at Wallingwells, the residence of Sir Thomas 
Woollaston White, Bart. — has a MS. note on the back: "she had 89 children by 
one husband. They were all born alive and baptized, and all Single births save 
one. The last child, who was born after his father's death, was a chirurgeon in 
King Street, Bloomsbury, and wrote Sexpomfitta. 

{Signed) "Eioh. Ashby, a clergyman." 

As no family connection seems at all probable, I think this picture mast have 
been purchased and hung up at Wallingwells as a curiosity in natural history (?). 

In ** Notes and Queries^' for September 1852 (First Series, vol. vi., p. 808) is 
given a MS. note written in a copy of Stxpox^Beta and sent by E. D.: " M" Green- 
hill, mother of the author, had 89 children," etc., just as above, and almost word 
for word up to " Bloomsbury." 

'^ ScKpoiniBeia or the Art of embalming, wherein is shewn the right [sic] of 
burial, the funeral ceremonies, and the several ways of preserving the dead bodies 
in most nations of the world," etc., 4to, London, 1705 [British Museum Press 
Mark 454, A. 22], was written by our Thomas Greenhill. Among the subscribers 
are William Gi'eenhill, Esq. (three copies), and Mr. John Greenhill (one copy). 
In an allegorical frontispiece, on the left liand top corner, is a curtain against 
which hangs a shield of Arms and Crest as granted in 1698, but the artist has 
failed to get thirtv-nine mullets into the limited space on the Crest. The work 
consists of three letters, viz.: (a) To Cha» Bernard, Serj.-Surgeon to her Ma*y & 
present Master of the Surgeons Company & one of the Surgeons to S^ Bart" Hosp^ ; 
{b) To D' John Lawson, sometime president of the Coll. of Physicians, London ; 

* It is not within the scope of this paper, but I think it likely that if Mr. Cussans had 
consulted the will of Henry Qreenhill of Greenhill in the parish of Harrow, proved at P.C.O. * 
21 August 1680 by his brother WiUiam Greenhill, he might have hesitated to write ion, Tba 
reference ib 69, Bcroope. 


and (e) To D' Hans Sloane, Secy to the Royal Society and P.C.P., London. 
The second and third letters are quite interesting reading, and contain acconnts of 
Egypt, the Nile, Pyramids, ete., with many illustrations, culled from the works of 
travel published at that date. 

I would warn my readers against the inaccurate account given in the " Dictionary 
of National Biography," vol. xxiii., pub. 1890, of Thomas Greenhill (1681—1740 ?). 
The writer cannot have seen the originiJ grant of Arms, 1698 — " born 1681." 
Are we to suppose that a youn^ surgeon setatis 17 (if he could hold a diploma at 
that age) could venture to apply for such a distinction I and could thus, still an 
infant, have earned that the Earl Marshall should be '^ well satisfyed of his Qualifi- 
cations," and " in consideration of his Services to his Grace and his Family," etc.? 
Such language could only apply to the experienced medical attendant upon such an 
illustrious household. Nor does it seem probable that a young man of 24 could 
have published the book in 1705 and addressed his letters to such distinguished 
heads of the profession. That may be possible. The other case pointed out is not. 
jf/* William the father died in 1681, Thomas cannot have been a posthumous child ! 
The grant is absolutely exact evidence, and was given to this Thomas and his 
descendants. Again, it seems to me that the, I am glad to say anonymous, writer 
never saw the original grant, or he would not have said that the lady's maiden 
name was White ; she was daughter of John Jones. 

The Greenhills have been at Harrow for many generations — I suppose they 
may be found even as early as the thirteenth century — and there were several 
branches. The Abbote Langley Registers of Births, Marriages, and Deaths from 
1658 to 1680 have been ^iissing for many years, as noted in the Register Census Act 
Report of 1880 (" Middlesex and Herte Notes and Queries,*' vol. iii., p. 11). But 
in the Subsidy Kolls for Harrow we find the following [see '^ Middlesex and Herte 
Notes and Queries," vol. iii., p. 186, and iv., p. 187] : — 

1642. Subsidy Roll. 

In Roxeth — Thomas Greenhill, in lands xx*. 

William Greenhill, in lands xx*. 

John Greenhill, in lands xx". 
In Greenhill — William Greenhill, gent., in lands iij^*. 

1675. Hearth Tax. 

In Roxeth — William Greenhill pays for 7 chimnies. 

John Greenhill, for 5 chimnies. 
In Greenhill — ^M' Greenhill, for 6 chimnies. 

The last shews that Mr. Greenhill held his house in Greenhill ; had it been let 
the tenant^s name would have appeared. I think it likely that the anonymous 
writer has given the date of the death of another William Greenhill and not the 
father of Thomas, who was of Greenhill and of Hyde in Abbots Langley. 

I have given a picture of the Arms as in the margin, because there is much 
confusion as to the term " Leopard." In James Coat's " New Dictionary of 
Heraldry, 1789," is this explanation : French Heralds laid it down that Lions 
passant-guardant were to be called " Leopards," but English Heralds declined to 
follow so absurd a distinction. It is thus that we sometimes meet with '^ the Leopards 
of England"! Even Papworth, at p. 19, blazons the Greenhill Arms granted 1698 
as '^ Yert 2 bars erm., in chief a lion pass, guard, or," and so it seemed desirable to 
give the original picture shewing the ordinary " Felis Leopard as." 

I, too, found it impossible *to get distinctly the important thirty-nine mullets on 
the Crest I and so have led it, like the original office copy, merely an uncoloured 
sketch. It will be noticed that the gryphon is disposed with wings addorsed, so as 
to leave the greatest possible space for these mullets, but the artist abandoned the 
attempt to shew them there !

but from Cambridgeshire.

it may be that the arms were incorrectly marshalled on the monument.

The Bev. Feanois John Poynton, M.A.y died at the Sectory, Eelston, 
Somerset, on the 22nd of November, aged 76. He was born at Chew Magna, 
Somerset, 16th Jnne 1827, and was educated at Shrewsbury School and 
Exeter College, Oxford. Elected to the Sjmes Scholarship in 1849 he was 
ordained Priest in 1851, and having served as Curate of Ducklington (Oxon), 
Slapton (Bucks), and Burmington (Warwick), he was presented to the living of 
Eelston in 1858. In 1874 he contributed to this Magazine '' Genealogical 
Memoranda relating to the Family of Blackburne," and a few years later he 
wrote and privately printed a History of Eelston, a work of great research, 
and containing many details of the Families of Harrington, Huddleston, 
Hawkins, etc. He was a friend of the late Col. J. Lemuel Chester, and 
was elected a member of the Harleian Society in 1875. Mr. Poynton had a 
very extensive knowledge of the antiquarian and family history of his 
neighbourhood, and contributed papers to the Bristol and Olonoestershire 
ArchsBological Society, the Somersetshire Archsecdogical Society, and to the

2%e Aneettry of Randall Tkemat Damdion^ D.I),, ArcltbUkop of Canterbury, By Rev. ADAM 

Philip, M.A., Longforgan. London : BUiot Stock, 62 Paternoster Row, KG. 
The Author of this tastefully got-up book begins faisr history of onr Primate by narrating how a 
worthy old lady nearly 80 years old in 1750 had bitterly complained of a Mr. David Randall, 
a merchant, who had been entrusted with a valuable MS. given to her by John Livingfstone 
of Ancmm, explicatory of the Bible, on tbe promise that he would get it printed in Holland. 
This was about 1728, and more than twenty years after she was still bewailing: its loss. This 
Mr. Randall had a son Thomae, who was taken to Edinburgh, where he graduated as an MA. 
in 1 730, and was ordained at Incbtnre in Perthshire when he was about forty yeaia old» Here he 
brought home his bride, Mary Davidson, daughter of a minister of Dundee. Like a prudent 
Soot he did not incur the happlneee of marriage before he vras fotriy sitiiated-; a flue marble 
tablet in the wall of the Ghnrch records that he died on 19th November 1700, aged 62» He 

3ld lilSdfiLl^A^feA GEl^BALOi^ICA SlT fiB&ALBtCA. 

was charitably inclined, as he left £300 for the benefit of the poor. His wife, who was widow 
of Mr. Thomas Elliot when he married her (another trait of his Scotch tact), had a son John 
Elliot, who became an apothecary, and went ont as a surgeon on board a privateer, and hayin^T 
acquired a large amount of prize-money, he settled and graduated at St. Andrew's TJniversi^ 
in 1750 as a physician, and three years after became a Licentiate of the College of PhysioianB 
and was soon celebrated in London, and was knighted in 1776, and finally became a baronet, 
having been Physician to the Prince of Wales ; it is said his fees were £5000 a year. Sir John 
Elliot married a Miss Grace Dalrymple, but got a divorce from her and £12,000 damages, and 
finally died at the seat of his friend Lord Melbourne ; his uncle, the merchant of Rotterdam, 
put up a tablet to his memory in the Church of Dundee. 

Our minister at Inchture proved to be a man of great force, publishing several papers on 
the laxity in the observance of the Lord's Supper. He was besides a busy man in his parishf 
which had a population in 1755 of 893, and on Saturday nights he would go round the village 
to see that the people were hoased and at rest, and he was not slow to rebuke those treepassing 
on the early Sabbath. It was surmised that he had met John Wesley, who had been more than 
once in the neighbourhood, but he had his misgivings of his zeal. He wrote several teusts, 
some of which were against patronage, which he considered was injurious. After a very active 
life he died in 1780, in his seventieth year and forty-second of his ministry. Thus passed away 
the ancestor of the present Archbishop of Canterbury. 

, Mr. Thomas Randall left a son Thomas, who was bom in 1747. There is a remarkable 
story told at Inchture, how that a parishioner had dreamt that her boy had fallen into the well 
used by the Manse and the village, and early in the morning she went direct to it, and found 
not her boy, but the minister's boy in it. Thus the child saved became the distinguished 
Dr. Thomas Randall Davidson. 

This son's early life was at Inchture, but having an uncle in Holland, who like his gcand- 
father had been there and prospered, after he had taken his college course in Glasgow young 
Randall was sent to Holland, and studied at Utrecht and Leyden, where he attended the 
Scotch Church, and found as a companion his tutor. Dr. William Thomson, a man of exceptional 
knowledge, and who left a long list of writings behind him. 

He became a preacher at Rotterdam in 1769, and preached his first sermon in Amsterdam ; 
he then returned to Scotland, and was appointed his father's successor at Inchture, when he 
was removed to Stirling. His stay here was not long, for he went to Glasgow, where he made 
his mark, and then went to Edinburgh, where he laboured from 1 785 till his death in 1827, 
receiving the degree of D.D. from Harvard University in 1798, and adopting the surname of 
Davidson from his uncle at Rotterdam, he inheriting his uncle's property at Muirhouae, 
Midlothian, as Dr. Thomas Randall Davidson, the present Primate his grandson being Dr. 
Randall Thomas Davidson. The enconium passed upon him by Dr. Mason of New York, the 
Chalmers of America, was "Rev. Dr. Davidson — Gentle, placid, pure, spiritual; talents 
moderate ; zeal and diligence g^reat ; affectionate, tender, beloved by the' good," etc. 

It suffices now for us to come to Dr. Davidson's sons. William, the eldest, succeeded to 
the estate at Muirhouse, and then it was associated with the fortunes of his fourth son Henry, 
who was a partner in a firm of timber merchants. There was another son, who was distinguished 
as an engineer. Mr. Henry Davidson married the daughter of a well-known Border laird, 
Mr. Swinton of Eimmerghame, and had three sons and a daughter— Randall Thomas, John 
Henry, Ernest Archibald, and Mary Catherine, and the eldest is the Primate, " for whom no 
better prayer can arise than that a double portion of the spirit of his forefathers may be upon 
him," as our Author concludes his history with. 

His Grace married Edith, the second daughter of Archbishop Tait, in 1878, and was Private 
Secretary to his father-in-law, whose name is reverenced by many in London. He was also 
the Secretary to Archbishop Benson in 1882-3. He became Bishop of Rochester in 1891—95 
and Bishop of Winchester in 1895—1903, his predecessor at each place being also well known 
in London as Dr. Thorold, formerly of St. Giles's and St. Pancras. 

In these days of confederation, when thousands of miles do not prevent our colonists " across 
the seas " from according to us their lives and friendship, and where our good old friend Dr. 
Nicolson lived very many years in Tasmania, his Church being the first built there, ministering 
as a Scotch clergyman since 1851 to a diocese equal in sise to many a minor European State, 


and XMMsingr away to his heavenly rest in his 94th year, what would not the British 
nationalities gain by an amalgamation brought about by the Primate between the English 
and the Sootch Churches. Their services are nearly alike, in many oases they sing the same 
hymns, and both are above pandering to notoriety. We mooted the same to an eminent 
Scotch clergyman who preaches in London, pointing out the advantages of one Church, but 
he gave no reply beyond his invite to come to his Church and hear him. 

The Work is illustrated by twelve ezoellent engravings, and its price of 8#. Qd. is too low 
for its worth. 

A Way of hU (Hon : An Autohiography. By A. Knotcutter. London : Henry J. Deane, 

Salisbury Square, Fleet Street. 1903. 
This is a well printed book of 256 pp., dedicated ** to all the Mudiee and the Smiths of 
the present time," but we doubt if they will move an inch out of their chosen way to 
enhance the circulation of the book. We are introduced to the boy who had " a way of his 
own " in his conversation with an old soldier, and the book recalls Hughes's " Tom Brown's 
School-days," except that the hero is under the control of the Lord Chancellor, and was 
possessed of fair wealth, was reckoned the best bowler and the '' cock of the school " in the 
summer for the coming season ; besides which he almost won a scholarship in Divinity, but 
the question about the '* march of the Jews in the wilderness " floored him. He put an extreme 
case to the Lord Chancellor by asking what could he do if a revolution broke out and his 
estates were seised ; how could he earn his livelihood 7 

Little episodes are given shewing l^ow his sympathy would be gfiven to animals. At a 
battue given by a sporting friend our hero was reckoned the best shot, and was accordingly 
invitedi and had the head gamekeeper to attend to him. To the latter's disgust, when a 
trembling hare at fifteen paces off looked up plaintively and caught his eye, he took no notice 
of it, although several gamekeepers were waiting to see what a shot he was, as he had struck 
the running deer ninety-nine times out of a hundred at a private gallery. The fearful eye of 
the hare was a shook to him, and he spared it, much to the beater's disgust, and so his character 
as a good shot was ascribed to ** Mad Leverett," as he was called. 

lliis shews us how the hero's sympathies were with animals. He found life too monotonous 
on his estates with three houses, so he sailed for Australia at a friend's invite. Here he helped 
him by taking up a banker's advance, and so saved his friend, and eventually the estates he 
himself acquired while there proved to be a gold mine to him. 

Our Author gives an account of a racing establishment, and among the horses he had 
reared when he returned to England, and had entered for the great Olympia race, was Mayflower. 
Greatly to the Squire's horror, his jockey came to him quite ill, saying he had been ^*got at" 
and could not ride the mare, and, driven to a great extremity, he sought advice of the head of 
the racing Committee, General Grouse, who acquiesced in his riding the mare himself, but 
being a man six feet high and clearing eleven stone, the bystanders gave a faint cheer, 
whilst the racing ring exclaimed *']U8t like Leverett," when they saw him jump into the 
saddle, having on ** white knee-breeches and silk stockings, but neither boots nor whip nor 
spurs." The upshot was, Mayflower shot ahead at once, after a cheering whisper from her 
master riding her, and despite all efforts of the riders against him she came in two lengths 
ahead of a colt not in the betting, but whose owner would not support an objection, as he 
said Leverett had been " a friend to the Turf that day." Where the Author got his account 
from of his hero's dress without his boots or whip was certainly not reported by any racing 

Our Author next pushes him forward for Parliament, and he got in. Having by an accident 
been enabled to help Lord Begibas when he had a fit in the Park, he got acxjuainted with his 
sister, who by her charming manner impressed our hero so much that he gave her Mayflower, 
and she finally gave him her hand. A merry wedding party of Lord Regibus and his bride 
and Squire Leverett, of Hare Park and Leverett Paddocks and the Overtun Bun in Australia, 
with Lady Victoria his bride, the daughter of the Duke of Ataris, all started together for 
Spain on their honeymoon, 


Hftying thus written a pleafiiog Jicooant of an eligible young man, who, becanae *' he bad 
a way of his own " was set npon by Society, oar Author has to be oongratulated upon the 
strict observanoe of not pandering to sensation or suicides or broken yows, and has always 
kept his readers in good society, from the Lord Chancellor, who was the hero's guturdiaU} 
down to the old soldier who first spc^e to him as to all being working men, anxious to do 
something, from the Prime Minister to the XK>liceman. He has produced a book which would 
be as great an attraction to boys as *^ Sandford and Merton," and ought to be in the hands of 
schoolmasters and others as a fit prise for a steady boy. Its price is only 3«. 6d. 

The ffutory of lYiar Lane Baptiit Churchy Nottingham, heing a eontrihution towards the 
History of the Baptists in Nottingham, By JoHK T. GODFBET and James Wabd. 
Nottingham : Henry A. Sazton, King Street. 1908. 

This is a handsome royal 8to volume, the first of its kind for publishing the Registers of 
a leading Nonconformist Church. Besides giving a full history of the Friar Lane Baptist 
Church, it gives fourteen pedigrees of the most notable families, well drawn up and printed, 
some dated from the early part of 1700, one later of William Vickers being born in 1797 and 
his wife in 1799, and she living till January 1891. The Church was built in 1724, and was 
sold for £100 as the third place of worship of the Baptists in Nottingham, the earlier records 
of the , body being lost. Like many other congregations they soon split up« seven members 
going from Park Street and establishing another Church, the George Street Baptist, Mr. Thomas 
Morley being the first Pastor in 1742. 

The " Declaration of Faith," dated 2 November 1769, bc^gan : **• We, a small handful of the 
unworthy dust of Zion, assembled together for the worship of God in Friar Lane," etc. ; and 
" in obedience to the command of God, we being now met together, again to make a fresh 
surrendour of ourselves to the Lord." The Bev. Richard Copper was the Pastor in 1769, and 
he had come from Kings ton-upon-Hull, and in the bock of the Declaration he had a list of all 
the regular members from 1770 to 1802, containing seventy -eight entries, but another list was 
there containing ** those who had been excluded and for what," and numbering eighty •seven 
names from 1770 to 1818. so that sixteen years later there were nine more members ozoluded 
than what formed the first congregation. Wl\y the "' unwortlgr dust of Zion " should be thus 
** excluded " is not given, but it certainly was not the behaviour of Christians who " love one 
another " to rebel so soon and in such numbers. In this early period the sum devoted to the 
Pafltor in quarterly collections amounted to £44 ^s. ^d, for ten months, about £1 2«. 2J. a 
week, so that possibly those who did not subscribe were those ** excluded." However, those 
who followed were not better, for "Mr. Hopper's income from the Church averaged about 
£1 0«. Od, per week " only. In 1784 half^-crown was paid for ** Engraving Cup," but after 
this extravagance some one stole it, and no trace of it could be found. 

In this small way the Church began, each year adding but little, until in 1810 £1144 were 
raised for the erection of a Chapel, the sums *' varying from seven shillings down to two pence 
monthly." Wherever '* Providence opened a door " a Bi-other would go and preach, but in 
1812-13 several members were excluded for impropriety, and two women for telling falsehoods, 
and in 1816 a Mr. Hood was excluded for being an " irreclaimable Antinamian," who contended 
that *' faith alone would insure salvation." 

The earliest known burial-ground was formed in 1724, and was a place of worship originally. 
The earliest head-stone is to the memory of John Walkley, who died in 1757, and the last 
interment was that of Miss Elizabeth Aldknow, who died in November 1876, aged 64 years. A 
list of eighty inscriptions is given. 

The Register of Births and Burials is given from 1742 to 1837, and was "taken from the 
original volume in the custody of the Registrar General, Somerset House," and Uie names 
occupy 40 pp., and that is followed by Biographical Notes in alphabetical order, including 
that of their first minister, the Rev. Richard Hopper, who began his ministry with fifteen 
members mieeting in a cottage before he went to Nottingham. There are twenty<foar 
biographies and nineteen portraits, the Rev. Samuel Ward dying in January 1840. A list of 


members from 1769 to 1815, inolndihf? women, is next given, oocnpyiner 11 pp., and contains 
the names of flfty-eifrht persons "dismissed" several to London and neigfhboarini? places* 
the last name (riven being William Yickers, who was of humble origrin, getting his education 
from the Churches Sunday School. He was apprenticed in 1810 to a lace manufacturer, and 
afterwards in 1818 he is described as in the lace trade, and had entered into partnership with a 
Mr. Frearson; they prospered, and had several agencies in South America, etc. In 1815 
Mr. Tickers joined the Baptist Church, and was in his prime in the days of Chartists and the 
Anti-Corn League. He afterwards became Alderman, and finally Mayor, when Her late 
Majesty visited Nottingham with the Prince Consort in 1843. To the Nottingham High 
School he devoted a great amount of time. He died in May 1882 and his wife in January 1 891, 
and the book gives both their portraits. He seems to have been the most successful man 
among the Baptists in Nottingham, and had seven children, some of his great-grandchildren 
being bom up to 1892 according to the pedigree. All the pedigrees are drawn out in a very 
excellent manner, and each folded within the book. The volume is a great credit to both 
the Authors, and ought to be supported by Baptists generally as an earnest monument to 
the histoiy of their body. It is excellently printed by the Choroton Press, and altogether 
worthy of patronage. 

How to Decipher and Stv4y Old Manuscripts: Being a guide to the reading of Ancient 
Manuscripts, Second Edition. By E. E. Thoytb, with an introduction by C. Pbicb 
Mautin. London : Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster Bow. 1903. 

Wb are very glad to welcome a second edition of Miss Thoyts* excellent guide to the 
decipherment of ancient documents, because the inference is that the work has paid its 
expenses at least. Mr. Martin has written an introduction, and some amusing blunders he 
gives, though to an unpractised reader of old documents the mistakes might not have been 

Li the Authoresses " hints to beginners " there are some excellent remarks about writing. 
This as a rule has deteriorated very much during the last thirty years. The pretty Italian 
handwriting taught in schools then to young ladies has drifted down to a coarseness which 
can be done equally well with a i>ointed piece of wood instead of with a delicate pen, and the 
young ladies of the day have degenerated in their writing to a large and awkward hand 
which a butcher boy would excel in. In a similar way our boys in going into examinations 
at Sandhurst and elsewhere are more often plucked for bad spelling, because the IJniversities, 
and after them other public and private schools, have thought spelling to be beneath their 
notice. The beautiful examples of writing we have among our Grants of Arms and similar 
documents are a proof of what writing was during 1400 and 1500. The deed of the Wax 
Chandlers* Company has a beautiful inscription at the foot which is a fair sample, and the 
Italians or Monks who did that no doubt wrote the inscription on other companies* grants. 
In the same way the Italian ornamentations adopted in many churches and colleges and 
private houses in Elizabethan days were done by the same Italian workmen, travelling from 
Westminster to Oxford and Wales and other parts. 

The Authoress considers that the decline or alteration in writing, dated from the introduction 
of the art of printing, is superseding the labour of the large class of men who had formerly 
earned their living as professional writers. But against these we must place the labour of 
love which the monks adopted in their beautiful designed initial letters running down a page 
in gold and blue, along with the text, examples of which are so rich in those shewn at the 
British Museum. 

It is rare we come across erasures or mistakes in the lettering of old charters, but any one 
versed in copying out wills, etc., will find the testator's name spelt differently throughout, as 
we have seen a will where the testator's name was spelt in seventeen different ways, and last 
of all he signed the will with a different spelling than what he begfan the deed with. 

A good knowledge of Latin is indispensable to a transcriber, whether the deed be in Latin 
or Norman-French, to which modem French is a great assistant ; but it is only by experience 
that he can decipher or interpret the multitudinous contractions and signs so generally 
adopted in the older documents. 



Even in our own days Sir Walter Soott and Charles Biokens* hands were dharmingf , whereas 
Lord Brougham and other leading men had each execrable writing to deoipher that it was 
stated that only one compositor could translate his lordship's meaning in the printing offioe 
where his work was done. 

The work is embellished with examples of writing, some of Fines and Court Bolls, such as 
the Sheriffs' Boll among the Keville MSS., and two photographic copies of the Beading Abbey 
Chartulary, besides giving some examples of quaint signs from old Parish Begisters. The 
Author spares no pains in shewing the student what abbreyiations he may come across, and 
her motto, as she finishes her agreeable task, is ** Persevere and Practise.'* The work is 
published at is, 6i2., and we would recommend every student of antiquarian taste to secure 
a copy. 

Ball Records, No. 1. Index to Wills qf Ball, Balle, or Balls in the Prerogative Omrt of 

Canterbury^ Somerset Bouse, liib — 1802. Bishops Stortford : A Boardman and Son. 1903. 
We must congratulate Mr. H. Houston Ball upon getting together a mass of information 
concerning the families of the redoubtable Balls from 1445 to 1802. Why such a name should 
be immortalized by the assiduity of a Ball living in 1903 is alone known to the compiler, who 
is, however, a member of the Boyal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, and that may account 
for his eccentricity, for he threatens his readers that if his efforts are supported he will deal 
with the calendars of the Bishop of London's Courts, and that may be a preliminary to the 
publications of the wills themselves. Such a catastrophe we trust we may be spared to see, 
much more to read ; and as among the gentlemen who take matters easy finding life is not 
long enough for chess, what is to be said of the future generation of readers who likewise 
take life easy, but will have to encounter the volumes of wills of the Balls families ? Out of 
536 persons given in the book there are a few clergymen, gentlemen, and mariners, and the 
rest belong to the ordinary public, including 100 women, the best placed of them apparently 
being the third wife of Dean Alexander Nowell of St. Paul's, who was married twice before to 
Thomas Ball and Laurence BalL There are about eighty Balls given in Kelly's " Commercial 
Directory," but we only find one Ball even among the knights. 

The pamphlet is undoubtedly a labour of love, and is a monument of painstaking industry. 
The Author does not affix any price to the book, which makes 22 pp. demy 8vo. 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. XL, No. 2. October 1903. 
Virginia Historical Society, Bichmond, U.S.A. 

The present Part gives an excellent account of the passing of the Moravians through Virginia 
in 1749, from a diary kept by Leoohard Schnell and John Brandmueller, who went from the 
settlements founded by Germans, preaching as they journeyed, and sometimes travelling for 
thirty-five miles without seeing a house, and climbing high mountains, living only on Johnny 
cakes. They were always allowed to share in whatever was ready ; one, a miller, however, had 
not a bit of bread in the house. The two travellers were received everywhere very cheerfully, 
and their host generally got together a company of neighbours to hear them preach and 
baptize the children. 

The proceedings of the Virginia Committee of Correspondence, 1750 — 67, were concerned 
in acts for relief of debtors, the liberty to import salt rather than ballast, and also to exchange 
coin. In Virginia ** Gleanings in England " are published the wills of many merchants and 
others, several requesting to be buried in the old country, and many leaving all they had to 
relations there. In some Virginia Records are petitions of various kinds : one for taking off 
a fine of 500 lbs. of tobacco against the petitioner for burning *' one Anthony Parre," as he 
had already paid 4000 lbs. on account of the action. 

In genealogy the Bruce family is amply given, likewise that of the Brookes and Hemdon 
families, besides several others ; and the Part ends with historical notes and queries of 
various kinds, some of which are very quaint 


The Journal of the Ex LibrU Society. Vol. XIII., Parts 9, 10, and 11, September, Oetober, and 

November. London : A. and C. Black, Soho Square, W. 
Ths Part for September has a plate as a frontispiece dated at top 1603 and 1798, and is 
inscribed '* Ez Bibliotheoa Abbatias Sti. Gregorii Ma^rni de Downside," beautifully engraved. 
There are two examples of bookplates designed by Mr. Graham Johnson of the Lyon Office, 
Edinburgh, one of the arms of David MacRitchie of Logic, Perth, and the other of Sir John 
Ure Primrose, Lord Provost of Glasgow, recently granted by Lyon Court, well drawn on 
similar lines. There is another bookplate of a very different character to these designed by 
Mr. C. E. Eldred, who is a Naval Officer but a delicate draughtsman, as the plate of '* Mary 
E. Harvey ** shews. The Franks* collection of bookplates is ably referred to by Mr. Alfred A. 
Bethune Baker, F.S.A., who refers to the first volume of the catalogue of the British and 
American bookplates bequeathed to the British Museum by Sir Wollaston Franks being pub- 
lished ; and as he says that before the end of the year the rest of the catalogue will be printed, 
comprising nearly 4000 bookplates, it is very gratifying to know that the Museum has so soon 
completed a catalogue of the collection nobly bequeathed to the institution which was 
graced for so many years by the presence and assiduous study of the kind donor. The 
Museum is thus the first public institution possessing a representative collection of bookplates, 
thus adding a great interest to the members of the Ex Libris Society. Such a collection as 
that of the late Dr. Howard's would have made another good addition had it not been so 
carelessly sent for sale, and many valuable plates distributed amongst buyers without any 
regard to the value of them. The Part ends with a further list of legal bookplates and also of 
a list of Chippendale plates. 

The October Part has a Hebrew bookplate of Elkah Nathan Adler as a frontispiece with a 
Hebrew inscription at the top of it ; it merely displays the outstretched eagle with an 
inscription running round the coat. There is a good account of Jewish bookplates written by 
Israel Solomons. Some single legal bookplates are also given, besides one of Mr. Henry 
Lawrance, originally designed by Miss F. B. Sarg and engraved by Will. Foster of Plymouth. 

The November Part, which reaches us as we are going to press, has two plates for the 
Frontispiece, one of Daniel Parsons and the other Robert Loveirs, some notes upon which 
will be found. That of Mr. Parsons is described as " a paternal coat quartering a maternal 
one, and impaling conjugal arms,** an excellent and concise description. The selection of 
Legal bookplates include those of the Ix)rd Chief Baron and Lord Penzance. There is also an 
illustration of the plate of Pratt Institute, Brooklyn— truly American. Some notes on 
Designing and Designers, a criticism of a recent American work on that subject, leaves us 
satisfied that the bookplate of the future will not want for able men to ensure at least artistic 
merit, which after all, it must be admitted, should be the principal feature of a bookplate. 

The New York Oenealogioal and Biographieal Record. Vol. XXXIV., No. 4. October 1908. 
Society*s Office : 226 West 58th Street, New York, n.S.A. 
This Part begins with a sketch of Anthony Bleecker of New York, and his portrait forms the 
frontispiece plate. The history of Old White Church in Salem is mentioned in an address 
delivered by Dr. A. Fitch, and the account given of it concludes with the record that it was 
116 years old, 100 of which was settled in the present place, and it can claim to be the 
oldest religious sodety in Washington County, and the Author finishes with the exhortation, 
** Long live the Old White Church in Salem t and when the last of its members shall lie 
beneath the sod, may it be the lot of a future chronicler to record with truth that we were 
worthy of the precious heritage it was our privilege to enjoy.** There are the Records of 
Marriages, Baptisms, and Deaths in Easthampton from 1696 to 1746, occupying several pages. 
A review of disbanded soldiers mustered at Bear River on 25 January 1784, and also a muster 
roll of officers, soldiers, and loyalists taken at Gulliver*s Hole, etc., also in June 1784. There 
are full accounts given of the family of Edward Fuller, also of the Waring family of co. Salop, 
England, with arms, and the Freer family of New Psltz, New York. An interesting Paper is 
given of Southampton, England, with a couple of illustrations of the Bar Gate, including 
a good account of objects of interest there. The Part winds up with Editorial accounts of 
several families, among them that of Mr. Rufus King, a late member of the Harleian Society 
of England, and the Yart gives ample indices of names and subjects in Vol. XXXIV., with 
title, eta 


Inland Natef and Queries, Vol. V.. Part 69. October 1908. Peterborongh : Georire C. Oaeter, 

Market Place. 

This Part contains an interesting acoonnt of De Foe, the author of Robinson Cmsoe, whose 
family it appears was' at Etton in Northamptonshire, not Elton as generally supposed. 
Mr. Thomas Wright, who published De Foe's life in 1894, holds that Foe, Faux, Yaux, and 
Devereuz are variations of the same name, and that his family came from Flanders. Daniel 
died in 1631, leaving a small estate. 

There is an interesting account of the French register at Thomey. The Huguenot settlers 
who came over here were engaged in the reclamation of the land on the Bedford estate, and in 
twelve years 40,000 acres of land had been brought under cultivation. Cromwell in 1630 
issued an ordinance granting to foreigners full rights of English citizenship, thus inducing 
many Protestant refugees from Flanders to betake themselves here. It was a hard life, hard 
even for them, for those who invested their money lost it, and in many cases it was forfeited 
for arrears of rates and taxes. 

The Part contains an account of two extensive fires occurriog, one at Woodwalton Fen, 
where ten acres of bracken and turf were one blaze, and it required the Huntingdon and 
Ramsey fire brigades to put it out. The other was at Wicken Fen, a resort of the wild fowl 
and scarce butterflies which frequented the neighbourhood. Twenty acres were destroyed of 
this last piece of fenland of Old England, and it was the home of considerable numbers of 
English plants and insects and some rare birds which are found in no other part of England. 
Ail were destroyed through the carelessness of four University men from Cambridge in 
throwing away unspent matches in the usual custom of smokers ; they saw the sedge catch 
fire, and when alight '* they lost their heads and ran away." They honestly owned it, so the 
proprietor forgave them. 

There are other interesting Papers all worth reading, and the Part keeps up its useful 
purpose in publishing anything pertaining to Fenland, and its drainage from 1637, great 
opposition being shewn to it by the commoners, who commenced riots in several towns. 
Cromwell besides was opposed to the drainage, which had been going on for years, and he 
abetted the malcontents.
